In Elizabeth, NJ, Maersk Sealand has added an extra lane for incoming trucks and is considering a second. It's also adding manpower at the gates, beginning at 6 a.m.
The carrier agreed last fall to expand its gate hours through lunchtime. Other possible changes include staying open until 6 p.m.
In Jersey City, NJ, Global Terminal & Container Services opened two new gates to serve truckers coming into the terminal to pick up containers. The "bobtail" gates will be open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Global is also reviewing its regular gate hours for possible extension.
