Mar 31, 2021
The Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) Board approved capital improvement projects that will increase the Port of Savannah's container capacity by 20 percent.
"Right now, we are moving container volumes that we did not expect to see for another four years," said GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch. "Our employees are working very hard to ensure we continue to provide our customers with world-class service. Additionally, we are expediting capacity projects that will increase the speed and fluidity of cargo handling at the Port of Savannah."
The board approved a terminal enhancement dubbed the Peak Capacity project, which will establish 2,100 new grounded container slots. The project will add 650,000 twenty-foot equivalent container units of annual container-yard capacity in two places, with the first opening in September.
