Port Inland Distribution Netork (PIDN)

January 2, 2004

The port of New York and New Jersey is experiencing extraordiary delays in the time it takes to pick-up and and delivery containers to terminals. In addition to the hiring of additional dock workers, the Port Authority has devoloped the PIDN, as an experimental method to resolve the problem of port congestion.

The PIDN calls for the addition of barge service on the Hudson River to various outlying ports. The hope is that this will reduce the congestion at the local terminals, as well as help to reduce truck pollution on the roadways.

The first port to be used is that of Albany, NY, which is located 125 miles north of New York City on the Hudson River.

The following ports are involved in talks with the Port Authority:

Davisville, RI
Bridgeport & New Haven,CT
Camden & Salem, NJ
Wilmington, De

The first stage is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of this year.

Cambell & Gardiner will be able to offer our clients complete services at all of these additional locations.
