Container-on-barge launches across NY-NJ port harbor "The service is intended to provide an alternative to the truck traffic that has sporadically choked the port with serious congestion, slowing the movement of goods and raising questions about the port’s ability to handle the growing volume of containers. About 15,000 truck trips a day go in and out of the port, and that is expected to increase as container volume rise, especially when a project to raise the Bayonne Bridge and allow larger ships into the entire port is completed late next year."
