SCPA expands facilities for agri-exports
The South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) has just opened the new C&M Hog Farm’s transload facility. The platform supports the handling of soybeans and other local US products bound for overseas markets via Inland Port Dillon.
“The expansion of C&M reflects the benefits of Inland Port Dillon for farming and agricultural business across the Carolinas,” said SCPA president and CEO Jim Newsome.
Demand for facilities to transload North and South Carolina agriculture products ranging from soybeans to grains, peanuts and animal feeds has been catered for by the inauguration of Inland Port Dillon in April 2018.
In addition to next-day rail service to/from SCPA’s marine terminals, Inland Port Dillon provides local access to empty containers and a round-trip pipeline for loaded containers. Established in 1987, C&M is an independent hog farm, local grain elevator and trucking company located in Latta SC (USA). (kd)
