The Port Authorities of Georgia and Virginia have filed with the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) to create the “East Coast Gateway Terminal Agreement.”

The agreement aims to encourage voluntary cooperation in the areas of operational and supply chain efficiencies, safety, communications and customer service. GPA and VPA also said they will utilize joint marketing materials and share best practices in areas such as terminal operating systems, training, cargo handling, access, turn-times and infrastructure, as well as supporting the promotion of all-water routes from the U.S. East Coast to the international marketplace via the Panama Canal.

VPA CEO and Executive Director John Reinhart and GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch said in a joint statement, “The U.S. East Coast continues to see larger vessels and cargo exchanges since the opening of the expanded Panama Canal last year. Increasingly, our customers are seeking gateway ports on the East Coast that can leverage sufficient landside infrastructure to ensure the free flow of cargo. The states of Georgia and Virginia have made the necessary investments to prepare for this new era in global trade. The East Coast Gateway Terminal Agreement is an innovative collaboration that will allow us to find new ways to become more efficient and effective.”
