Moving over 859,953 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) in June 2022, the Port of New York and New Jersey’s cargo volumes remain elevated at 40.7% over pre-Pandemic levels (June 2019). June was the second-busiest month of container activity in the Port’s history behind March 2022 volumes.  We are acutely aware of the current challenges associated with these extraordinarily high volumes, including periods of significant port roadway traffic, instances of longer than normal turn times, limited chassis availability, and lack of empty return locations.  We wanted to take this opportunity to provide important updates on measures that are being taken to try and address these issues.
