Our four state-of-the art terminals are positioned on the East and West Coasts in order to provide our carrier customers with easy access to the major international trade routes. All four have direct access to major freeways and national railways, so connections to-and-from the terminals are fast and reliable. And, in keeping with our leadership position, we are constantly upgrading and improving our technology, equipment, and processes so that we can continue delivering on time, every time.
State-of-the-art, award-winning GCT Bayonne is situated in the Upper New York Bay in Jersey City, New Jersey. Designed to the largest vessels operating on its tradelane, it is the closest container terminal to the harbour entrance. Currently at 40 hectares (100 acres), the terminalallows for unencumbered vessel approaches and reduces transit times by two hours and features the fastest truck turn times in the port of New York and New Jersey. Completed in 2014, the GCT Bayonne Expansion increases the size of the terminal so it now spans over 68 hectares (167 acres) and features an 823-metre (2,700-foot) berth. Leveraging the design, technology, and process improvements from its berth and landside modernization, the facility’s yard and gate complex was further upgraded, enabling GCT Bayonne to become the first terminal to introduce an advanced truck appointment system on the East Coast, smoothing traffic and reducing emissions as featured by the US EPA.
