Port Partners,

A reminder…

An online version of this message can be found here: ACL’s Atlantic Star (Voyage 419W) and Atlantic Sky (Voyage 219W) – Dual Calls at PMT and NIT North

As we work to improve ship-to-shore crane capacity at Portsmouth Marine Terminal (PMT), please be advised of the following:

• The ACL vessel Atlantic Star (voyage 419W) is scheduled to call PMT on July 25
• The ACL vessel Atlantic Sky (voyage 219W) is scheduled to call PMT on July 30
• All RoRo and breakbulk cargoes will be loaded and discharged at PMT, per standard operating procedures
• Once RoRo and breakbulk operations are complete, the vessels will shift to NIT North for all container operations (load and discharge)
• Import containers moving inland, via NS rail, for these two vessel should be rail billed from NIT
• Containerized rail exports, not already loaded at an inland ramp, for these two vessels should be routed to NIT

This is a temporary change. We will communicate with you, in advance, regarding any additional shifting of vessel calls.

If you have questions, please contact our Customer Service team at 757-440-7160 / POVCustomerService@vit.org.

Thank you for your flexibility and for your business.
