Portsmouth Marine Terminal (PMT)

Portsmouth Marine Terminal (PMT) occupies 287 acres of land and is located on the west bank of the Elizabeth River. The terminal has 3,540 feet of wharf, three berths, and is able to handle containers, break-bulk, and roll-on/roll-off cargo. The facility is served by CSX directly and Norfolk Southern via the Norfolk Portsmouth Beltline Railway.

The 44-acre Empty Container Yard is in service and the warehouse adjacent to the VIT operations building is currently being leased. As NIT and VIG continue to expand capacity, the Virginia Port Authority is currently assessing the best use of the facility to promote commerce and economic development for Virginia.


Portsmouth Marine Terminal is managed by Virginia International Terminals, LLC (VIT), a private operating company, through a Service Agreement with the Virginia Port Authority (VPA).
