From Griff Lynch: Harbor deepening update

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.
