GCT USA Welcomes HMM’s Return

[ May 19, 2020   //   ]

GCT USA was proud to welcome the Hyundai Hope to GCT Bayonne on May 16, 2020. The call marks the return of HMM (formerly Hyundai Merchant Marine) vessels to US East Coast services after a three-year hiatus. At 13,154 TEU, it also brings the first larger vessel call of THE Alliance (THEA’s) EC2 service to GCT Bayonne.

HMM officially joined THE Alliance on April 1, 2020, as its fourth full member. THE Alliance was formed in 2016 by Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express, and Yang Ming. THEA’s EC2 service will now call at GCT Bayonne weekly with vessel sizes of 13,000 plus TEU. With the EC2 upgrade, GCT Bayonne now accommodates three vessel calls per week of vessels over 13,000 and 14,000 TEU.

GCT Bayonne is uniquely able to serve these larger sized vessels on an efficient terminal footprint of only 200 acres due to its award-winning marine and landside technology and service. The terminal is among the most technologically advanced in the New York and New Jersey harbor and continually strives to provide best in class service to its customers.
