Port of Savannah reports new January container record

The Port of Savannah has set a monthly record in container volumes for the 18th consecutive month in January with 479,700 TEU proceeded, which is an increase of 4% year-on-year.

"The steps we have taken to add capacity have broken the logjam in global logistics for our customers and created jobs throughout the supply chain," said Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) executive director, Griff Lynch.

GPA has arranged a fifth pop-up container yard to grow further its capabilities, with the Port of Savannah now loading import containers for delivery to the 1.3 million m² CCX Yard in the city of Rocky Mount in North California, which is owned and operated by the railway company CSX.

Four other flexible pop-up facilities are located near manufacturing and distribution centres in Savannah, Atlanta, Statesboro and the Appalachian Regional Port, adding 410,000 TEU of additional container space, and reducing the amount of storage time at Garden City Terminal.

Meanwhile, the Savannah port's activity supported one job for every 10 TEU moved each year, or an additional 93,000 full and part-time jobs throughout Georgia in 2021, according to the most recent economic impact study by the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business.
