The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has prepared a list of facilities with additional storage capacity as part of a plan to mitigate container bottlenecks at its marine terminals once import volumes begin to rebound after the COVID-19 pandemic.
To address potential supply chain disruptions, a survey was conducted of warehouse operators to identify available warehousing in the region, port officials said on the PANYNJ blog Breaking Waves. The capacity ranges from traditional warehouse space and pallet positions to yard space and parking.
The port is "fully operational and continues to work closely with our port partners to ensure cargo fluidity throughout the region and beyond," the blog states.
Businesses interested in adding their information to the list of warehouse operations may contact Port Efficiency Manager Amanda Valdes by May 15.
Meanwhile, port officials reported cargo volumes in March declined 4.1 percent to 560,830 20-foot equivalent units (TEUs) compared to 585,098 TEUs in March 2019. The decrease was attributed to the pandemic's impact on the global economy.
CSX and Norfolk Southern Railway serve the port.
