Third Port is used to train personnel in cargo logistics and vessel operations. Located at Fort Eustis, Third Port is a deep-water port that provides a safe harbor for the Army's watercraft fleet and serves as a deployment platform for Army units. In addition, it is a joint service training facility for watercraft operators and cargo handlers. Third Port is a fixed-port facility housing 62 vessels. Landship, Hagglund Crane and Winch Farm provide terminal cargo handling training. Pier berths provide vessel management and operations training. Support facilities are located on premises. Vessel mooring and vehicle parking beside landship is not allowed, since the landship must be accessible for training at all times.
