Logistical Advantage

 

Port Newark is located in the midst of the largest and most affluent consumer marketplace in North America, and provides automotive importers with immediate access to more than 18 million consumers.  With its excellent highway network and intermodal connections to inland markets, the port provides one-day access to over 75 million consumers from Virginia to Maine, as well as Eastern Canada.  Within two days transport from the port, we can reach markets as far west as Chicago. The ability of Automotive Importers to reach their major markets more quickly and cost effectively than any other port of entry in the nation is also why the port is the home to manufacturer pre-delivery subsidiaries Toyota, Lexus, and , BMW. The Port is not only cost competitive as measured by significant inland freight cost savings to the market, but also offers cost competitive port processing services and the highest quality of deep-sea auto stevedores and warehousing labor provided by the International Longshoreman’s Association. Over the years, FAPS, Inc.
