Virginia Inland Port (VIP)

The Virginia Inland Port (VIP) is an intermodal container transfer facility in Front Royal, Virginia (Warren County) owned by the Virginia Port Authority.

VIP occupies 161 acres of land and is approximately 60 miles west of Washington, D.C. The terminal brings The Port of Virginia 220 miles closer to inland markets and enhances service to the Washington D.C. / Baltimore Metro Region by providing rail service to the terminals in Hampton Roads. VIP also consolidates and containerizes local cargo for export.

The terminal is serviced by 17,820 feet of rail track that runs adjacent to Norfolk Southern‘s Crescent Corridor. Intermodal rail cars arrive at VIP and gain access via Norfolk Southern rail to Harrisburg, PA and New York/New Jersey region. The facility is a U.S. Customs-designated port of entry, and offers customers a full range of services including an onsite log-stuffing operation, onsite chassis/container repair vendor, secure container storage, and shore power for refrigerated units.

Containerized rail service is provided five days a week to VIP from both Norfolk International Terminal and Virginia International Gateway in Portsmouth.

Well-known companies such as Home Depot, Red Bull, Newell Rubbermaid, Family Dollar, Lenox, and Mercury Paper have opened up distribution centers in the Front Royal area to utilize VIP, bringing jobs and economic benefits to the region.
