US East Coast Ports Yet to See Major Change in Vessel Sizes from Asia

Deployment of bigger container shipping vessels to the United States East Coast ports is yet to take place as carriers take their time to reshuffle their vessel schedules. Despite the removal of infrastructural obstacles that prevented bigger ships from entering East Coast ports, including the expansion of the Panama Canal and the most recent raising of the Bayonne Bridge at the Port of New York and New Jersey in June 2017, there have been no major changes in vessel sizes from Asia to the East Coast so far, according to CargoSmart.
