Productivity that works for you

Fast. Efficient. Focused.

Thanks to extensive facility improvements, GCT New York is ready to welcome big ships with speed and efficiency. The recent dredging project, completed at the end of 2014, deepened our berth to 50 feet (15.2 meters). Terminal operations are supported by a 3,012-foot (918.1-meter) contiguous berth, post-Panamax cranes, and an expanded on-dock rail transfer service. The terminal has the quickest truck turn times in the New York/New Jersey harbor and now we can extend this incredibly efficient service to even more vessels than before.

A Streamlined Process

With 24 truck gates and 13 scales, operations at GCT New York run seamlessly with the goal of getting our customers and their cargo in and out as fast as possible. The terminal has several unique services and procedures including in-house trucking services, paperless gate operations, and, when necessary, longer gate hours.

Road and rail connections

location

Moving right along.

All exit and entrance roads to the terminal are designed to keep traffic flowing smoothly in and out of the terminal. Dedicated transfer zones, pre-positioned cargo, and the elimination of cross-traffic intersections are just a few of the unique features that keep your cargo moving right along.

GCT New York has easy access to I-278, Route 440, I-95, 1-78, and Routes 1 and 9. It is just minutes away from the bridges that connect it to the tri-state area and the Northeast.

Warehousing Facilities

Worry-free storage solutions.

When it comes to storing your cargo, GCT New York is the only terminal in the harbor that maintains its own general and temperature-controlled warehousing facilities. Our secure, on-site warehouses provide customers with a low-cost storage solution, reducing the number of moves a container needs to make.

Containerized waste

vessel schedule

Environmentally-friendly waste disposal.

In 2015, GCT New York began servicing containerized municipal solid waste. Two special electric barge cranes, two new working rail tracks, and other supporting container handling equipment were added to service this account.

Municipal solid waste from New York City marine transfer stations are offloaded from barges and loaded on railcars where it is transported to waste-to-energy facilities in Niagara Falls, NY or Covanta Delaware Valley.
