The Ports

As one of the busiest ports in the U.S.* and the largest port on the East Coast, the Port of New York and New Jersey is a passageway to one of the largest and most important consumer markets in the world.

Through November 2022, the Port of New York and New Jersey handled more than 8,880,653 TEUs (20-foot equivalent units), 8% above the same period in 2021 and 22% above the five-year average. At current pace, 2022 will be the busiest year in the port’s history.

  • The Port’s volume through November 2022 places it well above the East Coasts other main ports of Virginia (3,429,265 TEUs) and Charleston (2,792,313 TEUs).
  • Despite the Port’s strong volume through the year, volume fell 8.8% in November compared to October’s total.
  • November’s month-on-month overall decrease was a result of slower volume in both imports and exports.
