Bayonne, New Jersey

Strategically located outside the Bayonne Bridge, GCT Bayonne is the closest container terminal to the New York/New Jersey harbor entrance, reducing transit time by two hours each way. Unrestricted by air and water draft, it is the only terminal in the harbor able to service the large vessels transiting the Suez and Panama canals.

This prime location, combined with world-class technology, make GCT Bayonne the gateway of choice for cargo moving between New York/New Jersey and the rest of the world.

A smooth transition from ship-to-shore

GCT Bayonne’s 2,700 foot (823 meter) berth and 50 foot (15.2 meter) draft is supported by 8 post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, 20 semi-automated RMGs, and 17 manned RTGs.

The landside RMG container stacks are uniquely positioned on an angle to facilitate easier approaches and departures for truckers. While the RMGs are semi-automated, all transactions are guided and monitored remotely by ILA-skilled operators.

A streamlined gate process

Getting in and out of GCT Bayonne is fast, easy, and above all, safe. Each gate is outfitted with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software, RFID, and remote image inspections. The result: a more efficient process for truckers and a safer work environment for everyone.

Road and Rail Connections

All exit and entrance roads to the terminal are designed to keep the traffic flowing. Dedicated transfer zones, pre-positioned cargo, and the elimination of cross-traffic intersections are just a few of the features that help keep operations running smoothly.

The terminal has direct access to the New Jersey Turnpike and is minutes away from the bridges that connect to New York, Long Island, and the Northeast.

On track for 2016

With a direct connection to the CSX and Norfolk Southern railways, the near dock Greenville Rail Yard will play a key part in GCT Bayonne’s operations. The yard was approved for redevelopment by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s Board in Q2 2014 and, once completed, will have a capacity of 250,000 lifts and 8 working tracks.
