Port Newark Container Terminal (PNCT) located in Port Newark, New Jersey occupies 259 acres, handling over 600,000 containers annually. In 2011, PNCT secured a long-term extension of its lease agreement with the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey for an additional 20 years through 2030, along with a 30 year option 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. The Port Authority of New York/New Jersey will invest up to an additional $150 million in improvements to the PNCT facility.
Further expansion plans include the development of 80 additional acres, berth deepening and upgraded capital equipment including three Super Post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes (2013) and mobile container-handling equipment (2012).
With gate access on Tyler Street, PNCT has 3 operating berths with 4,400 ft of berth space. The terminal is supported by six Post-Panamax cranes, as well as straddle carriers, reach stackers and empty handlers.
PNCT offers daily connection service with CSX rail.
