Port Of N.Y. & N.J. Directory Available

The 1977 edition of the Port of New York and New Jersey Scheduled Steamship Service Directory is now available for use by exporters, importers, freight forwarders and business and governmental agencies as a primary information source on the ocean shipping services available at America's leading port.

The Directory is updated and published annually by the Port Promotion Division of the Port Authority and lists the names, office addresses, telephone numbers and pier locations for all the steamship lines and agents offering regularly scheduled cargo, passenger, or cruise service at the New York-New Jersey Port.

This year, to better meet the needs of shippers, forwarders and others, the Directory lists the post office addresses of all the active piers in the port along with the ocean carriers, terminal operators and railroads at each waterfront facility. Another addition is an identification of those cargo lines which also carry passengers at the Port of New York and New Jersey.

A cross-index, identifying by nation over 350 ports around the world, precedes a list of all the countries to which scheduled service is provided from the Port of New York and New Jersey, combined with the names of the related steamship lines. This arrangement enables Directory users to pinpoint quickly ocean carriers and the trade routes and ports they serve.

Free copies of the Directory may be obtained from Paul Van Wicklen, the Port Promotion Division of the Port Authority at One World Trade Center, Room 63 South, New York, N.Y. 10048.
