Description
New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking responses from qualified private entities interested in developing and operating a dedicated barge service and marine terminal in New York Harbor, serving the Bronx’s Hunts Point peninsula. NYCEDC seeks to activate a barge service to achieve the City’s goals of creating good-paying maritime industrial jobs, reducing NYC’s over-reliance on trucks to move freight, and improving air quality, particularly for residents in the South Bronx. The service will provide a critical, reliable, and environmentally friendly alternative to moving goods by truck on area highways. The service may move domestic trucks, palletized cargo, or international containerized cargo. The development of the Hunts Point site may either anchor as a destination for a point to point operation from a local port facility, or operate as a stop on a regional service, utilizing the existing USDOT American Marine Highway barge network along the North Atlantic coastline.

NYCEDC plans to select a qualified private entity on the basis of factors stated in the RFP which include, but are not limited to: consistency with project goals, project feasibility, economic offer, and the qualifications, relevance, and experience of a respondent team.

It is the policy of NYCEDC to comply with all federal, state and City laws and regulations which prohibit unlawful discrimination because of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status and other protected category and to take affirmative action in working with contracting parties to ensure certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) share in the economic opportunities generated by NYCEDC’s projects and initiatives.
