NORFOLK, Va. — The Port of Virginia has signed a contract for the purchase of four new ship-to-shore cranes. The investment is part of a $320 million expansion of the Virginia International Gateway in Norfolk.

In July, the Virginia Port Authority Board of Commissioners approved the spending package of $44.8 million that covers the cost of the cranes, parts, their delivery to Virginia from China, and installation at the Norfolk facility.

Once the new cranes are delivered, the port will have 30 ship-to-shore cranes at work in Norfolk Harbor.

Norfolk Southern’s Heartland Corridor provides intermodal rail service between the Norfolk facility and midwestern destinations.
