    The 454-acre terminal handles about 2 million 20-foot-equivalent units a year, roughly one-third of the port’s total. New York-New Jersey, the largest on the East Coast and the third-largest in the US, handled 6,371,720 TEUs last year.

    New York-New Jersey’s container volume is expected to rise further with the completion at the end of next year of a project to raise the 151-foot vertical clearance under the Bayonne Bridge to 215 feet.

    The project will allow larger ships to reach Maher and two other Port Newark/Elizabeth terminals that now cannot be served by many vessels. The capacity of ships blocked by the bridge’s current height varies according to the vessel’s design, but generally includes ships with capacities of more than 10,000 TEUs.

    Raising the bridge will allow the port to gain full benefit of a decade-long dredging program, completed in September, that deepened the port’s main channels to 50 feet. Still, the port is expected to face significant challenges in accommodating growth, and these difficulties could be made worse by the heavier cargo surges that result from larger ships.
