About Richmond

Richmond, VA, known as the "River City," is the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia and has a rich history dating back to the early 17th century. It is located on the James River, which played a significant role in the city's development as a major transportation hub. In the 19th century, Richmond became a vital center for the railroad industry, with multiple rail lines converging in the city. This strategic location made Richmond a key freight transportation hub, connecting the East Coast with the rest of the country.

One of the most iconic freight transportation landmarks in Richmond is the Richmond Deepwater Terminal. Built in 1940, it is one of the largest marine terminals on the East Coast and serves as a major gateway for international trade. The terminal handles a wide range of cargo, including containers, automobiles, and breakbulk shipments. It is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure to efficiently handle the increasing volume of freight traffic.
