Ocean carrier is offering a Richmond bill of lading

Ocean carrier Yang Ming, which operates a fleet of 95 vessels, is offering a Richmond bill of lading to shippers.

That means importers and exporters using the carrier at the Port of Richmond will have access to the ports Yang Ming serves worldwide.

“This is another step in expansion and revitalization of the Port of Richmond,” said John F. Reinhart, CEO and executive director of the Virginia Port Authority. “This decision adds to the increasing significance of the barge service that connects the Port of Virginia terminals and the Port of Richmond.

“This move will pay dividends to our mutual customers, the economic development community and to Yang Ming.”

The 64 Express barge service provides three weekly round-trip container-on-barge sailings between the Hampton Roads marine terminals and Richmond’s port, a 121-acre facility served by rail and located just south of downtown Richmond off Interstate 95.
