SC Ports: cargo volumes on the rise
Retail importers and advanced manufacturers are investing billions of dollars to establish and expand operations at South Carolina’s Ports (SC Ports).
For Barbara Melvin, SC Ports President and CEO, investments can “ensure that South Carolina remains competitive” but also “increase our rail competitiveness by building a near-port intermodal hub that will further enhance fluidity for our customers.”
Cargo volumes at SC Ports are tended up in April, up to 11% month-over-month. The operator moved 214,101 teu and 119,572 pier containers at the port of Charleston.
SC Ports’ two rail-served inland ports in Greer and Dillon handled a combined 17,177 rail moves in April, up nearly 15% year-over-year, with Dillon achieving a record April with 3,752 rail moves. (lh)
