Port of Virginia to Work Extended Hours

US Port of Virginia plans to extend its gate hours at Virginia International Gateway (VIG) from August 15 until the week ending November 4, 2016, due to the increased seasonal cargo volumes expected to arrive over the next few months.

Gate hours at VIG will be extended on Monday and Tuesday each week, until 11:00 p.m. (inbound portal closure at 10:00 p.m.), the port authority said.

Extended hours at the Pinners Point Container Yard (PPCY) will be regularly evaluated and offered on an as-needed basis.

Gate hours at all other Port of Virginia terminals will remain unchanged.

The port authority also said it will continue to monitor volume flows and service levels, taking additional action as needed.

The Port of Virginia handled 2,573,635 TEUs in fiscal year 2016, against 2,510,099 TEUs in fiscal 2015, an increase of 2.5 percent.
