The Port of Virginia's 2nd Quarter Community Newsletter reports that in January the Norfolk Southern Raiload began routing traffic moving between The Port of Virginia and Detroit and Cincinnati over the Heartland Corridor reducing transit times and improving service reliability for double-stack freight traveling to and from these markets.
This was possible by the Heartland Connector project, which included raising clearances at five locations along the 124-mile route between Cincinnati and Columbus and adding tracks at Norfolk Southern's Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal near Columbus.
Prior to the upgrades, double-stack intermodal trains leaving the Port of Virginia for Cincinnati and Detroit followed longer routes through Tennessee and Pennsylvania. Now, double-stack trains bound for Detroit use a route that is 212 fewer miles and save up to two days transit time.
The new service route also offers customers an additional day of frequency from both Norfolk International Terminals and the Portsmouth APMT marine terminal to Cincinnati and Detroit.
