Our operations and technology teams have identified a small subset of trucks serving our port that do not have RFID tags. Trucks without RFID tags will delay the interchange process at NIT as part of the automated gate system (AGS) project. It is imperative that all trucks serving NIT and/or VIG have RFID tags installed in order to gain the efficiencies that are part of the new AGS.

Drivers who have an RFID tag from VIG will NOT have to replace the one they already have.

For those drivers who need an RFID tag, please use the remainder of this week to stop by the Port Police building at NIT, or driver’s assistance at Virginia International Gateway (VIG), to get your free RFID tag. The port will begin enforcing the use of RFID tags at NIT on Monday, December 8, 2014. If you do not have an RFID tag on your truck on December 8, you will be turned around at the interchange and directed to the Port Police building to obtain one.

Thank you for your support.
