VPA to continue as normal as bid is evaluated

VPA to continue as normal as bid is evaluated

Additionally, Virginia International Terminals Inc., will continue to be the terminals’ daily management and operational company, as it has been since 1982.

“We anticipate the process of evaluating this proposal to take between 12 and 18 months and during that period our focus will continue be on customer service, delivery of service and our commitment to making Virginia the leading port on the US East Coast,” said Jerry A. Bridges, the VPA’s executive director.

“Customers will continue to work with the same VPA and VIT representatives they have been working with in the past; nothing has changed.”

On March 12, CenterPoint Properties Inc., presented its proposal to lease the operating rights of the state’s three deepwater general cargo marine terminals – Norfolk International Terminal, Portsmouth Marine Terminal and Newport News Marine Terminal – and its intermodal ramp, the Virginia Inland Port.
