From Griff Lynch: Harbor deepening update

Making progress in Savannah, Brunswick

Dear Friends and colleagues:

I wanted to take a moment to let you know about some recent developments regarding both the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project and the Brunswick Harbor maintenance effort.

Currently, the Savannah River entrance channel deepening is approximately 60 percent complete. In the near future, this portion of the project will benefit ship traffic by opening a wider tidal window and greater scheduling flexibility for neo-Panamax vessels. At present, the Port of Savannah is serving vessels up to 10,700 TEUs, and is expected to handle a 13,000 TEU vessel in May.

Growing infrastructure supports world-class service

Growing infrastructure supports world-class service

Griff Lynch on progress of Garden City's mega rail, Brunswick Ro/Ro expansion and inland terminal

Adding cranes in Savannah or doubling Ro/Ro space in Brunswick is about more than boosting already impressive cargo numbers.

 

The point is ensuring our ability to grow along with our customers, and never experiencing the congestion that occurs when demand becomes equal to capacity. GPA employees, our partners in the ILA and service providers deliver unmatched service on our terminals today. In our efforts to enhance that world-class service, we are making progress on several fronts.

Unique Advantages at Georgia Ports Authority’s Ocean Terminal

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

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.
