New York terminal operating agreement extended

Red Hook Terminals will continue management until at least 2023.

 
   Red Hook Terminals (RHT) said Thursday it had reached an agreement with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to continue management of the Red Hook Container Terminal for five years.
   The agreement includes an extension option for an additional five-year term if both parties agree.
   RHT President and CEO Mike Stamatis said the cooperation with the port authority “should serve as a model for public-private partnerships and the continued revitalization of public maritime assets.”
   RHT has managed the Red Hook Container Terminal since 2011 and occupies Piers 9-10 at the Port Authority Brooklyn Marine Terminal. More than 1,000 people are employed at the facility.
   Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said “Red Hook’s container port is critical to Brooklyn’s economy and to our region’s overall shipping capacity. This facility is the only container port on the east side of the Hudson River, which houses two-thirds of our region’s population, and it must be preserved.”

   Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez, D-N.Y., added, “I also look forward to its expansion at South Brooklyn Marine Terminal. The more freight that can move by water and rail, the fewer vehicle miles traveled by trucks on our roads and bridges. This means less wear and tear on our road and highway infrastructure and a reduced environmental impact.”
We have been present for 60 years in Puerto Rico showing our dedication to both the island and our customers during difficult times and also times of growth and prosperity.
