Top 6 Most Advanced Port in the United States

Virginia provides food and beverage manufacturers easy and efficient access to international markets and supply chains through world-class facilities at The Port of Virginia. By 2024, The Port of Virginia will complete $1.5 billion in modernization and expansion projects, including terminal improvements, dredging, and technology, making it the East Coast’s deepest port and one of the most advanced ports in the world.

The port’s completion of USDA’s Southeast In-Transit Cold Treatment Program, allowing Virginia to accept a broad range of imported perishable cargo, and the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) designation that allows exchange-graded coffee to arrive through the port, are both part of The Port of Virginia’s focus on supporting Virginia’s Food and Beverage industry.
