G-MAP Highlights

53’ Trailer Network to JFK Airport

The first success among the early-action goals for G-MAP came in March 2015, when the NYC Department of Transportation implemented a rule change sought by the air cargo industry at JFK to create a legal, highway-only route for industry-standard 53-foot trailers to carry freight to and from the airport.

Numerous industry and government studies had recommended this revision to the longstanding citywide restriction on operation of these vehicles within the five boroughs, noting its adverse impact on JFK's competitiveness with other gateway airports and the potential to reduce the total number of trucks used to transport JFK cargo. With support from NYSDOT and assistance from the NYC Economic Development Corporation and the Port Authority, City agencies documented JFK shippers' reliance on highway routes, and the City committed to enhanced monitoring of local truck movement patterns on the Van Wyck Expressway corridor.

G-MAP is creating a comprehensive data set to improve truck navigation in the region. The NY/NJ region’s jurisdictional complexity across two states and multiple municipalities causes fragmentation of information and challenges for navigation.

The Port Authority is building and vetting the truck navigation data set in collaboration with public sector and industry partners. Accurate and comprehensive information—including bridge clearances, weight limits, speed limits, time restrictions, and designated truck routes—is necessary to ensure safe and productive movement of goods throughout the region.
