Virginia International Gateway – Reefer Process

An online version of this message can be found here: Virginia International Gateway – Reefer Process

We would like to confirm the existing policy/process for delivering live reefer loads at Virginia International Gateway (VIG).

Receiving live reefers at VIG:

•Upon receiving a route ticket, the driver should proceed to the 400 rows (see map below) to receive a temperature check with a reefer mechanic.
o If a chassis change is needed, the driver should proceed to the 400 rows prior to heading to the “flip” area.
o If routed to the 400 rows, the driver should park in the route ticket assigned space and a reefer mechanic will come over to perform the temperature check.
o If routed to a stack location, the driver should proceed to the 400 rows first for temperature check, then through the MRS genset line for genset removal, prior to heading to the assigned stack.
• Please note that upon entry to the terminal, the driver’s license plate will be flagged with a temperature check hold that will prevent driver from exiting if no temperature check is performed.

Questions regarding this policy should be directed to VIG’s yard department at 757-686-6120.
