The Red Hook Marine Terminal is an intermodal freight transport facility that includes a container terminal located on the Upper New York Bay in the Port of New York and New Jersey. The maritime facility in Red Hook section of Brooklyn, New York handles container ships and bulk cargo.[1][2][3] The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) bought the piers in the 1950s when there was still much break bulk cargo activity in the port. The container terminal was built in the 1980’s,[4]

There are six active container cranes along 2,080 feet berth, 3,140 feet of breakbulk berth space, two major bulk-handling yards, and approximately 400,000 square feet of warehouse.[5] In October 2011 the PANYNJ took over operations at the site.[6][7] In 2011, the terminal handled 110,000 containers.[8] Red Hook Container Terminal LLC operates the terminal on the Port Authority's behalf.[9] Nearly all labor on the terminal is supplied by Local 1814 of the International Longshoremans Association union.[10]
