Port of Virginia reports record August volumes

The Port of Virginia announced that it experienced the most productive August in its history, moving 240,605 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), a 2.2 percent increase when compared with the same month last year.

“As construction progresses at VIG (Virginia International Gateway) and the civil work at NIT (Norfolk International Terminals) continues, the port team is performing at a very high level with no reduction in service levels and the safety of our colleagues as our first priority,” said John F. Reinhart, CEO and executive director of the Virginia Port Authority (VPA).

On a calendar-year basis, total TEU volumes are up 7.4 percent; containers up 7.7 percent; rail, up 4.7 percent; trucks, up 9 percent; and barge, up 26 percent.
