Virginia Port Sets Container Volume Record in March

Posted:

NORFOLK, Va. (AP)- The Port of Virginia has rebounded from February storms that reduced container volume.

The Virginia Port Authority tells media outlets that the port set a single-month record in March, moving 229,410 containers. That's up 16 percent from March 2014.

Some of the increase is due to postponing the entry of nearly 7,000 containers from February to March.

The record container volume wasn't all good news, however.

Port authority director John Reinhart says container volume overwhelmed the Virginia International Gateway. He says the delivery of service there for the first three weeks of March was unacceptable.

Reinhart says steps have been taken to alleviate congestion, including the addition of more cargo handling equipment.
