Record throughput at Port of Savannah

571 georgia


Georgia’s Savannah port posted another record fiscal year for container traffic for the 12 months ending in June.  Container traffic hit a record 4.5 million TEUs, up 7.3 percent from the prior fiscal year. Automotive and machinery units shipped through the state’s Brunswick port were up 4 percent during that time. The Savannah port also saw substantial growth in shipping by rail. In 2018, the ports authority launched its Mason Mega Rail Terminal, a sprawling new rail yard designed to improve the Savannah terminal’s connection to the main CSX and Norfolk Southern rail networks. The Mason project will ultimately reduce the time for products arriving in Savannah to reach Nashville, Memphis and Chicago by rail. That project is about 40 percent complete.
