Empty Return Matrix – Daily Report Scheduling

May 29, 2018

Accessibility is one of our guiding values.  We constantly strive to improve cargo accessibility, as well as accessibility to the online tools and information you need to plan your work day.  With this in mind, The Port of Virginia is pleased to announce the following change:

  • As of Tuesday, May 29, 2018, the port’s Empty Return Matrix will be posted daily at 1500 hours (3:00 p.m.), Monday through Friday, covering the next regular workday
    • The previous daily schedule called for a 1600 hours (4:00 p.m.) posting
  • The empty return matrix remains in effect through the next working day following a holiday
  • Use the empty return matrix to determine the designated location for the return of empty ocean containers, by shipping line

By providing this vital information one hour earlier each day, it is our hope that the trucking community will be better equipped to plan and manage the complexities of cargo movement across the port.

Thank you for your business.
