Making The Port of Virginia the preferred U.S. East Coast ocean gateway for cargo owners involves more than expanding physical infrastructure to handle more cargo volume. In today’s competitive world, moving cargo to its owners quickly and predictably is critical.
Cargo is flowing across The Port of Virginia with efficiency and dependability as a result of expanded container handling capacity at VIG (Virginia International Gateway) and NIT (Norfolk International Terminal) as well as our new Truck Reservation System (TRS). Our volumes, on a month-to-month basis, continue to grow and cargo owners are seeing their goods move across the terminals faster than ever before.
Cargo owners want efficient and economical access to world markets and the ships moving the cargo need modern, safe deep-water ports. They also want assurances that ports can meet their needs today and expand to meet their needs 10 years from now. The Port of Virginia is doing exactly that: investing for today, preparing for tomorrow and creating sustainability for decades to come.
