Port Customers and Partners,

(An electronic version of this announcement can be found here:  Truck Reservation System – March 1 Launch at NIT – Truck Queuing Policies )

As you know, we are excited to launch the PRO-PASS Truck Reservation System (TRS), with mandatory hours beginning at NIT on Thursday morning, March 1, 2018.  The efficiencies gained via the TRS will facilitate a faster, more efficient on-terminal experience for our motor carrier partners.

Beginning March 1:
Mandatory reservations will be required between 0500 – 0700 hours, Monday – Friday

At NIT North and South, the inbound OCR portals will open at 0430 Monday – Friday and at 0630 on Saturdays.

TRS reservations are made within a one hour block.  During the week, a reservation may be made between 0500 – 0600, or 0600 – 0700.  A 30-minute grace period will be extended on either side of that one hour block.
A driver with a reservation between 0600 – 0700 may arrive NO EARLIER than 0530

During this first phase of NIT’s TRS rollout, mandatory reservations will end at 0700 Monday – Friday and 0900 Saturday.  Beginning at 0700 (M-F) and 0900 (Sat.), NIT’s truck gates – North and South – will be open to service all trucks, with no reservations required.  Recognizing that a certain number of trucks will likely time their NIT arrival as close to 0700 (or 0900) as possible, we are designating a seven acre lot at NIT North (highlighted in red), in proximity to the Drivers’ Assistance building, for short-term truck queuing.

Questions regarding the TRS and/or this announcement should be directed to Nancy Christian – 757-404-7918.

Thank you for your support and flexibility.
