The Port Performance Task Force (PPTF) held its second meeting on January 9 to review and finalize Work Group memberships. The Task Force identified representatives from 40 companies and organizations across 10 industry sectors to participate on the five work groups. Statements of work as well as goals and objectives have been set by the PPTF. Work Groups started to meet this week to address mission critical areas and establish timelines for deliverables.
We are working with a sense of urgency and now that the Work Groups are formed, we will get down to business. Work Groups will discuss the following areas of concern along with other issues critical to port productivity:
Each Work Group will ensure that industry stakeholders have an opportunity to voice their suggestions related to critical issues facing the port. The Task Force will strive to make this process transparent and inclusive to the entire port community.
We expect and want our business partners at the Port of NY & NJ to provide input and have the ability to consider recommendations in accordance with their own needs. Please contact Port Authority staff assigned to support the Work Groups, and they will relay your comments and input.

The group agreed to the creation of five Working Groups addressing specific issues related to port productivity.
