Richmond Marine Terminal (RMT)

Richmond Marine Terminal (formerly known as “The Port of Richmond”) is located on approximately 121 acres along the west bank of the James River, with 80 of those acres within the secure terminal. The facility is owned by the City of Richmond and leased by the Virginia Port Authority, under an agreement that began in late 2010.

Richmond Marine Terminal has 300,105 square feet of warehouse space. The facility has a 1,570-foot long wharf available for berthing and handles containers, temperature-controlled containers, break-bulk, bulk, and neo-bulk cargo. The facility is a U.S. Customs-designated port of entry, and the full range of customs functions is available to customers.

James River Barge Service, a weekly container-on-barge service from Hampton Roads to Richmond, provides a maritime alternative to I-64 by transporting goods on the James River via barges, removing container traffic from local roads and highways.
