The Ports That Move the World: Inside New Jersey’s Shipping Ports and Terminals
November 22nd, 2019

The Ports That Move the World: Inside New Jersey’s Shipping Ports and Terminals

The Port of New York and New Jersey recently became the second largest container port in the country. In fact, port leadership anticipate that the amount of cargo coming through the port could double in the next 30 years. The Port Authority of NY/NJ recently released their Port Master Plan 2050 with a blueprint for how the ports will grow and develop over the course of the coming decades.

So why should the growth of New Jersey’s ports interest you? Did you ever wonder how the product you buy on-line or from a store got there?  From the time a ship pulls into port until the time you purchase that product, there is a lot that happens behind the scenes. Our ports, highways, railways and warehouses all play an important role in New Jersey’s economic success. On Wednesday February 19, CIANJ will be hosting experts in shipping, logistics, port terminals and more. This event is an opportunity to hear from the professionals, business leaders and lawmakers who are responsible for making our ports’ explosive growth happen. Attendees will also hear about port enhancements and projects underway as well as upcoming procurement opportunities.

Why should you attend? If you, your clients or customers are involved in transportation and logistics whether in design or construction or operation, this is a can’t miss event. Seize the opportunity to become a sponsor early on and be branded for this special event.
