The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) has launched a request for proposal (RFP) for the development and operation of a barge service and marine terminal in New York Harbor, serving the Bronx’s Hunts Point peninsula through a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) scheme.

NYCEDC seeks to activate a barge service to achieve the City’s goals of creating good-paying maritime industrial jobs, reducing NYC’s over-reliance on trucks to move freight, and improving air quality, particularly for residents in the South Bronx. The service will provide a critical, reliable, and environmentally friendly alternative to moving goods by truck on area highways. The service may move domestic trucks, palletized cargo, or international containerized cargo. The development of the Hunts Point site may either anchor as a destination for a point to point operation from a local port facility, or operate as a stop on a regional service, utilizing the existing USDOT American Marine Highway barge network along the North Atlantic coastline.

NYCEDC welcomes questions and/or request clarifications until April 25, 2019. 

The deadline for the submission of documents for the tender is on June 7, 2019.
