IMC Companies and H&M Intermodal Services have jointly opened a new truck and depot terminal in Newark, N.J., adding needed capacity to the busy Port Newark container freight market.
Located at 915 Delancy Street, the new 10-acre location features a paved, lit, fenced yard with 24-hour security-controlled access and storage for 1,200 containers. Just over three miles from Port Newark, the new location is equipped with lifts to ground containers, as well as a warehouse and freight transfer facility.
“This location brings much needed velocity in the New York-New Jersey market for those who ship through the ports,” said Barry Bernard, president of H&M Intermodal Services. “Our new facility offers customers the ability for us to pull their containers into our secured storage until they are ready to take delivery.”
The new freight transfer facility is in the final planning stages for construction and is expected to open in spring 2023. The building will feature a 20,000-square-foot warehouse with 21 dock doors and 5,000 square feet of office space. The facility will also offer warehousing and transloading services.
“The transfer facility is another value-added service for our customers, allowing the quick transfer of freight from container to over-the-road trailer, which will reduce per diem and chassis usage expenses,” Bernard added.

With the New York-New Jersey port complex the third busiest in the country, logistics companies have been expanding in the region. Logistics company Taylored Services, which has served clients including Marc Jacobs, Macy’s, Burlington and Nordstrom, recently announced a campus setting by leasing 100,000 square feet of additional space at 201 Mill Road in Edison, N.J.
Serving as its new 20,000-square-foot corporate headquarters, the company said Taylored Edison II is strategically located 15 minutes from the Port of New York-New Jersey. The site offers multi-channel customers a competitive advantage for trans-loading, cross dock and bonded container freight station services, as well as full case distribution and e-commerce unit fulfillment solutions.
In 2019, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey opened the final stage of a rail facility in the port’s network will advance its five-year strategic goal of handling more than 900,000 rail lifts a year. It will also expand rail capacity for cargo destined for outside of the region.
The Port Jersey rail facility, part of what is known as the ExpressRail system, concluded a $600 million Port Authority capital investment program dating back to the 1990s that established direct rail access to on-dock and near-dock intermodal rail services at all of its major marine terminals. The facilities are designed to reduce the port’s historical heavy reliance on trucks to transport cargo that arrives at the port by ship to its final destination.
