Port of Savannah Moves Up in the Rankings

The Port of Savannah is busy!

The Georgia Ports Authority announced that the Port of Savannah handled the equivalent of 2.16 million shipping containers last year.

The huge gain makes Savannah second among East coast ports, followed by Hampton Roads, Virginia, and Charleston, South Carolina.

The Port of New York-New Jersey is expected to remain the busiest. Their numbers doubled the closest competitor, Charleston, last year.
