Regional Goods Movement Action Program

Freight transportation, though not the focus of the Trans-Hudson Summit or the Profile, is equally important to the vitality of the bi-state metropolitan region. The Port Authority, New Jersey Department of Transportation and New York State Department of Transportation have developed a joint Regional Goods Movement Action Program, dubbed G-MAP, which outlines a comprehensive agenda of operational, regulatory, and investment priorities that can assure more efficient and sustainable performance of essential goods movement to support regional trade, and commerce and consumer needs. A summary of the G-MAP program, and its priority objectives and strategies is available here. You can request more information about G-MAP, and send questions and comments to the inter-agency G-MAP team.

Southern New Jersey Freight Transportation and Economic Development Assessment

This study evaluated the freight transportation needs to support current and future commercial and industrial activity in the southern New Jersey region. Recommendations are made for specific projects in highway, rail and marine infrastructure necessary to maintain, improve and expand key industry sectors. The report is separated into a detailed summary report and a technical appendix.

Preceeding this study, NJDOT conducted a visioning plan in 2008 to evaluate areas of potential growth in maritime freight, freight logistics, and associated economic development for the southern New Jersey region. This visioning plan identified the needs, opportunities and constraints of this region and served as a foundation for the larger and more detailed study.

Southern New Jersey Port Complex

The southern New Jersey Port Complex plays a vital role in moving a wide variety of products crucial to our quality of life and the economic wellbeing of the Delaware Valley. In 2011, NJDOT commissioned an economic analysis of the economic impact of the southern NJ port system that includes the South Jersey Port Corporation facilities in Camden, Gloucester, Paulsboro and Salem as well as the private terminals in Gloucester City. This report is based on economic models developed by the Bloustein School of Planning and Policy at Rutgers University.
