Tour Port Newark Container Terminal!
Port Newark Container Terminal (PNCT) located in Port Newark, New Jersey occupies 267 acres, handling over 700,000 containers annually. PNCT secured a long-term extension of its lease agreement with the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey with options through 2050.
As one of the largest infrastructure projects in New Jersey, PNCT will invest $500 million into the expansion before the year 2030. The expansion is expected to double the number of containers moving through the terminal, creating significant economic growth within the region.
PNCT has already doubled its on-dock rail capacity, purchased three (3) super post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes and has significantly expanded and improved its fleet of container handling equipment and support yard. PNCT is ready today for the ultra large container vessels which will be calling the Port of NY/NJ once the Bayonne Bridge is raised.
Further expansion plans include the development of 74 additional acres, a new gate facility, additional berth deepening and upgraded container handling equipment including additional super post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes.
