      I strongly anticipate that this terminal is a prelude in preparing for a lot of new business when the Panama Canal completes it's expansion in mid-2015. Here's why:

      Less than three miles from downtown Norfolk, Va., with convenient access to Interstates I-264 and I-464 at 1305 Atlantic Blvd., the Chesapeake TBT also enjoys close proximity to rail-serving yards on Norfolk Southern's high-density main line. The Chesapeake TBT is strategically positioned to serve Hampton Roads-served markets as well as markets overseas with its close proximity to nearby container terminals.
