Sponsored: In fiscal 2017, The Port of Virginia grabbed the No. 1 rail port spot for the East Coast. Executive Director John Reinhart and Chief Operating Officer Shawn Tibbetts discuss plans to increase rail capacity and expedite freight flow, detailing construction projects and equipment improvements under way, including a 1 million-container capacity growth by Summer 2018. Virginia was the first-in port for many mega ships after the Panama Canal expansion, but fluctuations are expected, and Port of New York-New Jersey's Bayonne Bridge raising will benefit the entire coast, Reinhart says.
