SC Ports achieves container rail record

Container volumes dropped in August at South Carolina Ports (SC Ports) with 203,169 TEUs and 111,745 pier containers, translating to a 9% decrease from the same month in 2022.

"The US port industry is anticipating a slower peak season than typical due to a lower consumer appetite and tempered US economy," said SC Ports in a statement.

However, in the same month, Inland Port Greer set a new monthly record with 16,857 rail moves. This figure represents the most monthly moves in the port's history, with a 52% growth from August 2022.

Moreover, Inland Port Dillon, which sits along the North Carolina border and is served by CSX, had a good month as well. Inland Port Dillon handled 3,439 rail moves, an 83% increase over the previous year.

"SC Ports' rail-served inland ports create more reliability, flexibility and speed for our customers’ supply chains," pointed out SC Ports President and CEO Barbara Melvin, adding, "Our incredibly successful inland port network reinforces the importance of providing near-port rail to the Port of Charleston with the new Navy Base Intermodal Facility, which is on track to open in 2025."

Also, SC Ports' vehicle segment remained solid in August, with 17,876 vehicles passing through the Port of Charleston, a 9% increase year on year.
