Through July 2022, the Port of New York and New Jersey handled more than 5,679,626 TEUs (20-foot equivalent units), 10% above the same period in 2021 and 33% above the five-year average. At current pace, 2022 will be the busiest year in the port’s history.
- The Port’s volume through 2022 places it well above the East Coasts other main ports of Virginia (2,171,000 TEUs) and Charleston (1,652,000 TEUs).
- Despite the Port’s strong volume through the year, volume fell 9.7% in July compared to June’s total.
