Additional shipping services and strong economy build momentum for Savannah

Savannah, Ga. — June 6, 2017  Larger vessels and additional container services calling Georgia's ports coupled with a positive economic forecast ushered in an all-time record month for container volume. The Georgia Ports Authority handled 350,104 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) in May, 11.68 % more TEUs compared to the same month a year ago, or 36,619 additional TEUs.

“It’s evident shipping lines are deploying larger vessels and cargo exchanges through the Panama Canal to Georgia's ports," said GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch. "This is a strong indicator that an important market share shift to Georgia is possible through recently restructured shipping services."
