Hunts Point Marine Terminal

  

The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking proposals to develop and operate a dedicated sea barge terminal serving Hunts Point and the greater South Bronx. NYCEDC hopes that a local barge service will create good-paying jobs, reduce truck traffic and improve local air quality. 


The barges would travel between Hunts Point and the large container facilities in the NY/NJ harbor, moving food, steel, lumber, or other finished goods or raw materials. The goal is to provide a reliable water vessel alternative to trucks by building a new local section of the “American Marine Highway” barge network along the North Atlantic coastline. 


Proposals are due August 1, 2019 at 4:00 pm.
