Port Partners,

Mindful of Hurricane Florence’s impact on cargo movements, and in the interest of fairness and accessibility, The Port of Virginia announces the following:

• During terminal closures, terminal free time on loaded containers will be extended for the duration of the closure
• All charges related to the storage of empty containers on Port of Virginia facilities will be waived during the closure
• Please contact your ocean carrier for their free time and demurrage policies related to your specific cargo movements
o Per diem charges, for containers outside our terminals, must be pursued directly with the ocean carrier
• For HRCPII chassis charges, relief will be considered on a case-by-case basis
o To inquire regarding relief on chassis usage charges, send an email to

Thank you for your business. We are doing all that we can to safeguard facilities and cargo.

Be vigilant and be safe.
