Taking care of your cargo – and each other.
The Port of Virginia is doing everything possible to become the U.S. East Coast’s leading gateway for global trade for the next several decades. Between 2015 and 2025, the port will have invested $1.5 billion in its infrastructure – creating a network of six terminals that can handle any type of cargo.
Dredges hit our waters in late 2019 and our deepening and widening efforts are in full swing. By 2024, we’ll once again be the deepest port on the U.S. East Coast with 55’ channels and two-way traffic for the largest vessels calling our coast. In our constantly changing industry, The Port of Virginia is tackling today’s toughest challenges, while shaping the supply chain of tomorrow with one goal in mind – let’s keep the world moving.
