The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) yesterday announced the release of a request for proposals for a consultant to draw up a long-range master plan for the port.
The plan would guide the port's growth and development for the next 25 to 30 years. The review would examine all six container terminals; auto, bulk, cruise and adjacent real estates holdings; and support services and operations, PANYNJ officials said in a press release.
"Our port has been a national trendsetter in the maritime industry and continues to be the leading East Coast gateway for international shippers," said Port Commerce Director Molly Campbell. "To continue this positive trend, we must take a holistic look at the entire port operation and develop an optimum plan that will allow us to efficiently grow the business for decades to come following a record 10.4 percent increase in cargo volumes in 2015."
In developing the plan, the consultant would use data and information from previous studies, including the 2014-2015 Land Use Plan and the 2015 Port Demand and Capacity Study.
RFP responses are due May 9. Port authority officials anticipate the consultant's review would take up to 18 months to complete.
