Intermodal rail sets monthly record

March 4, 2024 – The Georgia Ports Authority handled 451,670 twenty-foot equivalent container units in February, for an increase of 56,880 TEUs or 14.4 percent compared to the same month last year. Loaded import containers gained 19 percent for 219,000 TEUs, while export loads increased 10 percent to 121,930.

“I’d like to thank our customers for making Savannah the premier gateway into the U.S. Southeast for global commerce,” said GPA President and CEO Griff Lynch. “The region’s fast-growing population, and an increasing number of manufacturing and logistics operations are both factors in the long-term expansion of trade through Georgia.”

Lynch said he was pleased to see two consecutive months of growth in January and February. After a challenging start to the fiscal year, the improving volumes should carry GPA to a stronger second half of Fiscal Year 2024, ending in June. read more…
