Port of New York and New Jersey

Posted on Posted in Naval

The Company had a huge responsibility and honor when we were tasked in the construction and opening of the nation’s first facility for container shipping which became the prototype in 1958. This prototype quickly became the modern version of the Port of New York and New Jersey. It includes the system of navigable waterways in the estuary along 650 miles of shoreline in the vicinity of New York City and northeastern New Jersey, as well as the region’s airports and supporting rail and roadway distribution networks. Considered one of the largest natural harbors in the world, the port is by tonnage the third largest in the United States and the busiest on the East Coast.
