Our port is versatile when it comes to moving cargo.

Our port is versatile when it comes to moving cargo. Whether by truck, train or our growing barge service, our goal is to do so as safely, swiftly and sustainably as possible. That’s why we are active partners with agencies like the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO) and advocates of two rail projects, the Heartland Corridor and National Gateway as well as the alternative plans presented within the Hampton Roads Crossing Study. At The Port of Virginia, we rely on the robust transportation infrastructure found in our surrounding communities and continue to advocate for thoughtful expansion. The planned Norfolk International Terminals (NIT) North Gate tie-in to the I-564 Intermodal Connector is one example. All of these avenues allow us to sustain a reduction in traffic congestion and emissions in surrounding communities and maintain efficient, safe movement of cargo.
