Hate waiting in line? So do containerships.

At the Port of Savannah, the Georgia Ports Authority operates nearly 10,000 feet of berth space on a first-come, first-served basis. No waiting on limited docking leased to a single shipping line.

Our nine berths, backed by 25 ship-to-shore cranes and a 1,200-acre container operation, give us the flexibility to adjust to changes in shipping schedules.

Because we dedicate dock space based on customer needs, ships can get in and get out more quickly. Cargo moves to market with greater speed, and the companies that own the freight start seeing a return on it faster.

Handling ships more efficiently is important when you’re hosting 37 containership calls a week – the most in the Southeast. To find out more about scheduling a shipment through the Port of Savannah, check out our Global Carrier Services Tool.
