Changes to coming on July 9th

July 6, 2017

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve efficiency and offer greater accessibility to your cargo, we are pleased to announce an upgrade to a newer version of the Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS) at Portsmouth Marine Terminal (PMT), Richmond Marine Terminal (RMT) and Norfolk International Terminals (NIT).  The upgrade will be implemented during the month of July.

As part of The Port of Virginia N4 upgrade, there are several considerations you should be prepared for:

PMT and RMT, which currently reside on the same systems as NIT, will be moved to an independent platform. Why?

  1. A $350 million investment at NIT will result in a historic renovation and redesign of the existing facility.  Deploying a higher level of technology, over the next three years, will require frequent software upgrades.
  2. PMT and RMT will not experience this degree of short-term change.

PMT, RMT and NIT will not be available beginning 12:00 a.m. until 1p.m., July 9th.

If you are using to track container status, you will have to specify the location of your search.  You will need to choose NIT or PMT/RMT since they will be on separate systems.
