City, Port Seek Shift to Barges for Moving Freight

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the New York City Economic Development Corporation have created an advisory board to foster the use of barge services to offset the use of trucks and supplement rail cargo to and from the Port of New York and New Jersey. The North Atlantic Marine Highway Alliance is intended to complement Freight NYC, a $100-million plan that NYCEDC released earlier this year.

“With cargo volumes continuing on record pace, it’s critical that we explore all options to transport goods on and off the port complex to reduce congestion on our highways and our environmental footprint,” said the Port Authority’s Molly Campbell.

The Alliance will be composed of public agencies, port authorities, marine terminal operators, and service providers, and will provide a forum for stakeholders to work collaboratively to develop and expand regional barge services among two or more North Atlantic ports.
