Unique Advantages at Georgia Ports Authority’s Ocean Terminal

By: David Porter, Regional Sales Manager

Unlike a container operation, Ocean Terminal offers something different each day. Even as more freight is shipped via containers, Ocean Terminal holds on to its history, while continuing to bring economic growth to Georgia.

Historic images of Georgia Ports Authority

Seventy-two years and counting

The Georgia Ports Authority was created on March 9, 1945, by an act of the Georgia General Assembly.  Since the authority was formed, the Port of Savannah has become the fourth busiest in the U.S., while Brunswick is one of the nation’s busiest ports for vehicle imports and exports. To celebrate our anniversary, we’ve gathered a sampling of images as a tribute to the visual history of the ports at Savannah and Brunswick. If you have historic images of Georgia’s ports, we would love to see them. You can email them to egoldman@gaports.com.

Strong Growth, Expansion in Brunswick, and Appalachian Regional Port Update

Dear friends and colleagues,

I want to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your continued confidence in our ability to handle your business.

December was a strong month for GPA, in which we moved 292,172 twenty-foot equivalent container units and 63,967 units of roll-on/roll-off cargo - a 12.3 percent increase in both categories.
 
Driving this growth are a number of factors, including unparalleled advocacy from Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal, our state General Assembly and our GPA Board, who continue to support our efforts to invest in the critical infrastructure that keeps us ahead of the growth curve.

Key Advantages to GPA’s Mid-American Arc

Mid-American Arc to expand target market

The Port of Savannah’s Garden City Terminal is the Southeast’s busiest intermodal gateway. However, the GPA is making a series of infrastructure improvements that set the stage to capture greater market share.

Savannah is poised to rapidly increase service to an arc of inland markets, from Atlanta to Memphis, to St. Louis, Chicago and the Ohio Valley.
