Infographic: APM Terminals Port Elizabeth

Port Technology International: "Larger ship calls to the Port of NY-NJ’s Newark Bay terminals have been made possible by the raising of the Bayonne Bridge on the channel into Newark Bay.

The roadbed of the Bayonne Bridge, linking New Jersey with Staten Island, and originally completed in 1932, has now been raised to a height of 215 feet (65.5 meters), 64 feet (19.5 meters) above the bridge’s original 151 foot (46 meter) vessel passage clearance. This will permit ships of up to 18,000 TEU to enter Newark Bay, including the APM Terminals Port Elizabeth terminal, as of June 30, 2017."
