Freight NYC, New York City’s visionary freight plan, will strengthen neighborhoods and create good-paying jobs by implementing several strategies that modernize and optimize how freight moves into, through, and out of the city.
PortNYC expands and enhances the City's freight rail infrastructure and operations by modernizing rail connections laying new track, and negotiating service contracts with Class I railroads and short line carriers.
The Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) designation saves money for companies importing goods to New York City. Company activities that save money range from warehousing to repackaging to more intensive manufacturing. The FTZ program gives special status to foreign imports and duty-free status for re-exported items.
