CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Gov. Nathan Deal has signed a new inland port agreement with the Georgia Ports Authority to expand shipping services throughout the region.

The agreement will provide a 200-mile rail route between the authority's terminal in Savannah to southwest Georgia, Florida and Alabama.

The agreement will help expedite shipping because truckers will no longer have to make round trip deliveries from Cordele to Savannah or Brunswick.
