Summary Examines how an effective private and public sector collaboration enabled a successful and timely port recovery. Established as a "lesson learned" from 2005's Hurricane Katrina, the Marine Transportation System Recovery Unit (MTS-RU) and their efforts during Sandy provide a model for not only reducing potential damage, but also successfully restoring critical transportation, energy, cargo, and security facilities in the event of natural or mad-made disasters
