Panel 1

THE HIGH COST OF TRAFFIC

New York City currently relies on a highway-based freight system that is increasingly expensive, unreliable, and polluting.

“The main entryway for packages into New York City, leading to the George Washington Bridge from New Jersey, has become the most congested interchange in the country.” – New York Times, 10/28/19

“The Brooklyn Queens Expressway (is) a clattery, belching, potholed sluice of despair. The long-neglected midcentury highway is collapsing. Experts give it until 2026.” – New York Times, 4/10/19

Panel 2

OUR SOLUTION

Minimize inefficiencies throughout the current system while giving customers access to under-utilized waterways.

Use the waterways to bypass congested bridges and tunnels.

Locate warehouses in the city and closer to the customer.

Use an all-electric fleet stationed within the city to minimize emissions and miles driven.

WHY SWITCH TO WATERWAYS?

 “The volume of imports and exports transported by our freight system is expected to more than double over the next 30 years…Most of this additional cargo will ultimately move along our surface transportation corridors, many of which are currently at or beyond capacity.” — Admiral Mark Buzby, Administrator of the Maritime Administration, to Congress 6/19/19

undefined

Daily deliveries tripled in NYC from 2009 to 2017

undefined

Limited and in-expandable road space with multiple bridge and tunnel choke points

undefined

Driver shortages and traffic congestion are forcing trucking companies to demand a premium to move cargo from NJ to NY

undefined

Congestion pricing as well as access to city-owned landing sites and grants will facilitate increased use of NYC waterways

“The city will assist in developing the facilities needed to support increased barging in our harbor.” — NYCEDC

Panel 4

A REAL SOLUTION FOR CLIMATE CHANGE

To limit global temperature increases to less than 2 degrees Celsius, we must decarbonize the global economy.

We greatly reduce the number of road miles from origin to delivery.

Shifting freight from road to rail and water is the best and least expensive way to decarbonize the freight sector.

It is also one of the simplest approaches and does not require most companies to make large capital investments.
