MISSION, VISION, VALUES

In 2017, the Georgia Ports Authority adopted a new mission, vision and values in an effort to let our customers, stakeholders and service providers know what to expect from the GPA today, and where it’s headed in the future.


OUR MISSION:

To empower entrepreneurs, strengthen industries, sustain communities and fortify families by relentlessly striving to accelerate global commerce.


OUR VISION:

The Georgia Ports Authority was founded in 1945 to promote trade and economic development for our state. Through our ports, Georgia proudly serves as a gateway for America. We will sustain our leading role among United States ports.


OUR VALUES:

SAFETY: Ensure everyone goes home the way they arrived.

 INTEGRITY: Do the little things right, even when nobody is watching.

 RESPECT: Treat others as you would want them to treat you.

 COMMUNITY: Care about our neighbors – locally, regionally, nationally and globally.

 CREATIVITY: Think beyond our ports to the entire supply chain. 

 OPPORTUNITY: Continually focus on sustainable growth. 

 

 

Thank You Port of Savannah and the Neighboring Community

After the Port of Savannah and the neighboring community filled four shipping containers in hurricane relief aid for our friends in Texas, the folks at Port Houston sent this heartfelt thank-you.
