PARSIPPANY, NJ—Following consecutive years of record growth, the Port of New York and New Jersey’s cargo volume for 2016 finished slightly below the record-setting 2015 level, but is ahead of last year’s pace as of February 2017. This rising tide of cargo is driving the New Jersey industrial market’s vacancy rate to its lowest level in nearly 17 years, according to Transwestern’s First-Quarter 2017 Industrial Market Report.
