Commodity Flows

To understand the critical importance that the goods movement network has on the region, look no further than what you wear, use and eat every single day. If you are to look at the tag on the shirt you’re wearing, it was likely manufactured at a location on the other side of the world. The banana you just ate for breakfast? Grown 3,000 miles away. The New York – New Jersey region is dependent upon the movement of freight across all modes of transport – ship, air, rail and truck – to sustain its quality of life. Here are just a few of the many ways some of the commodities we often use or consume make their way to our region.

  • Bananas
  • Lobsters
  • Furniture
