This is the largest private port development in the United States and is operated by the Virginia Port Authority. It began under APM Terminals and has since evolved into a partnership that includes Alinda Capital and the Virginia Port Authority. The terminal saw significant upgrades in 2019 and is now capable of handling three Ultra Large Container Vessels at one time. The terminal is equipped with a fleet of 12 super post-Panamax cranes, capable of handling the largest container vessels. The container yard consists of 28 semi-automated stacks, served by 56 rail mounted gantry (RMG) cranes. These stacks can easily process more than 3,500 truck transactions per day. The terminal also offers more than 1,200 reefer plugs for customers moving chilled and frozen cargoes.
