The ambitious Global Terminal Expansion Project (Global) in Jersey City, New Jersey went live on April 16, 2014. The facility now offers faster transaction and processing times, increased safety, and improved reliability for containers moving between New York/New Jersey and the rest of the world.
The project was borne out of a unique opportunity. Global is the only terminal in the New York harbor that is not restricted by the air draft of the Bayonne Bridge, a 100-year-old structure that blocks the Elizabeth River, and prevents large ships from reaching parts of the harbor.
Capitalising on this opportunity, the expansion doubles the size and capacity of the terminal and has a capacity of 1.1 million lifts a year.
