As you know, truck gate and mandatory Truck Reservation System (TRS) hours changed on Jan. 10 (PMT only) and will change on Jan. 17 (NIT, VIG, PPCY).
Effective Thursday, Jan. 17, Virginia International Gateway’s (VIG) gates will open at 0300 hours, Monday – Friday. From 0300 – 0500 hours, VIG will be the only Port of Virginia terminal open to trucks.
Regarding the return of empty containers, the daily Empty Return Matrix governs all routings. Effective Jan. 17, VIG will not accept empty returns outside matrix instructions.
- If the matrix designates empty return to the PPCY, that empty MAY NOT be returned to VIG between 0300 – 0500 hours, nor at any other hour
REMINDER: During mandatory TRS hours, empty returns routed to VIG and NIT, by matrix, require confirmed TRS reservations.
