Trucking Partners,

At Virginia International Gateway (VIG), we are pleased to announce an important change in the handling of refrigerated/reefer containers.

Effective Monday, July 20, 2020, reefer temperature checks will be relocated:

  • When bringing in a loaded reefer for export, drivers will proceed to lane 4 (southernmost lane), under the Chassis Service Area (CSA) canopy, to have their reefer temperature checked (see image below)
  • When directed, the driver will pull forward under the canopy, stopping before the lowered gate arm, to receive service
  • Over-the-road drivers must remain inside the cab, with the truck in PARK, while being serviced
  • Drivers may depart as directed by the terminal team, once the gate arm is raised
  • When the temperature check is completed, the driver will traverse through the CSA and queue up in the existing genset mount/dis-mount lanes

If you, or your drivers, have questions about this change, please contact our Customer Service Team at 757-440-7160, or povcustomerservice@vit.org.

Thank you for your business.
