    About Port of New Haven


    The Port Of New Haven

    The Port of New Haven is the highest volume commercial shipping port on the Long Island Sound and is considered the busiest port between Boston and New York City. With a federally authorized channel depth of 35 feet and a width of 400 to 800 feet, New Haven Harbor can accommodate ships ranging from 20,000 to 40,000 deadweight tons.

    The Port of New Haven is strategically located at the junction of Interstates 95 and 91 with access to freight rail service for the movement of cargo.

    The 366 acre port district is primarily comprised of a cluster of privately owned facilities that handle petroleum products, general bulk, cargo, scrap metal, metallic products, cement, sand, stone, salt, break bulk and project cargo.

    *There is currently warehouse space available for lease within the port district.

    **The Port of New Haven also has Foreign Trade Zone designation.
