THE Port of Virginia, centred on Norfolk, is this year's winner of the Port Management and Infrastructure award at the Lloyd's List 2019 Americas Awards, reported the American Journal of Transportation.

This year, the port took home the award for its Virginia International Gateway (VIG) infrastructure project: a three-year, US$312 million investment that reimagined and re-engineered one of the nation's most state-of-the-art terminals.



The project doubled VIG's container and rail capacity, extended its berth to accommodate up to three ULCVs and incorporated the port's own Trucker Reservation System (TRS) that dramatically increased gate throughput.



'As trade patterns shift, the ships calling our coast will get larger and the cargo owners are seeking ways to get their goods to market faster,' said port authority CEO John Reinhart. 'The results we are achieving are truly best-in-class and resonating throughout the industry.'



The Excellence in Port Management and Infrastructure award recognises the company, port authority or terminal that has maintained the highest standards of operational efficiency and customer service.
