The year 2019 will be remembered as one of growth at the Port of New York and New Jersey. Following a successful 2018, where the port crossed the 7 million TEUs (20-foot equivalent units) mark for the first time, 2019 broke that record to end the year with a total of 7,471,131 TEUs (4,238,107 lifts), a 4.1 percent increase.
This record-breaking number of loaded imports boosted the port’s standing to become the second busiest port in the nation in 2019.
Imports reached 3,788,479 TEUs in 2019, a 2.6 percent increase over the previous year’s total of 3,692,908 TEUs, and exports rose by 5.6 percent during 2019, reaching 3,682,652 TEUs compared to 3,486,880 TEUs in 2018.
