Foreign-Trade Zone 49, Newark/Elizabeth, NJ; Application for Expansion
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone 49, requesting authority to expand its zone to include
a new site at a marine terminal on Upper New York Bay in Jersey City/
Bayonne, New Jersey, within the New York Customs port of entry. The
application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade
Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the
Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was formally filed on September 23, 1985.
On April 6, 1979, the Port Authority received authority from the Board
to establish a foreign-trade zone within the Port Newark/Elizabeth Port
Authority Marine Terminal on Newark Bay (Board Order 146, 44 FR 22502,
4/16/79). In May 1983, the zone was expanded to include the entire 2200-
acre terminal complex (Board Order 211, 49 FR 24958, 6/3/83).
This proposal would add 41 acres within a nearby, private marine terminal
complex on Upper New York Bay in Jersey City and Bayonne, New Jersey, some 4
miles from the Narrows. The facility is owned and operated by Global
Terminal and Container Services, Inc.
In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The
committee consists of: John J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, Foreign-
