About the Ports

“As the largest port on the East Coast and the third largest in the US, the Port of New York and New Jersey is a passageway to one of the largest and most important consumer markets in the world.”

During July 2021, the Port of New York and New Jersey handled more than 758,000 TEUs (20-foot equivalent units), the most ever for a month of July and the third highest total for any month in the port’s history.  At current pace, 2021 will be the busiest year in the port’s history.

  • The record cargo volume handled allows the port to maintain its position as the busiest on the East Coast and the third busiest in the nation following Los Angeles and Long Beach.
  • Cargo volume at the port volume was 29.7% greater in July 2021 compared to July 2020.  The growth was led by a 42.7% increase in empty export TEUs and a 20.8% surge in loaded import TEUs.
  • After several months of strong volume in rail cargo, July 2021’s volume decreased 10.9% compared to July 2020.
