Virginia Governor Ralph Northam announced the completion of the Port of Virginia’s $320 million expansion at the Virginia International Gateway container terminal. The completion of this project is a significant milestone as the Port works to enhance cargo and container capacity at its two major terminals, with a total goal of increasing capacity by 40%.
Carriers will be able to limit the capacity inflation of the ultra large container vessels (ULCVs) that are to arrive the following years by delaying deliveries and slowing services, according to Drewry. According to the current orderbook, the overall number of orders is approximately 460.000 TEU for 2019, whereas Drewry predicts that in 2020 the calls will reach about the 620.000 TEU, reaching a record.
