Fiscal year to date, the Inland Port has handled 45,826 rail moves.

 

The Greer Inland Port handled its highest ever monthly rail moves, with 5,513 moves completed in April, according to the S.C. Ports Authority at its board meeting today.

Fiscal year to date, the Inland Port has handled 45,826 rail moves.

The SCPA reported it handled nearly 15 percent more pier containers fiscal year to date than the same period last year, with total box volume through April climbing to nearly 900,000 containers.

SCPA handled 96,166 pier containers in April, compared to 86,505 boxes moved during the same month last year. The port plans to handle more than 1 million containers by the completion of its fiscal year on June 30. 

“The volumes announced today reflect significant growth across all business segments," said SCPA Vice-Chairman John Hassell. "Spring is typically a busy season for us, particularly on the containerized cargo side, and our sustained double-digit volume growth reflects the strong import-export markets we serve. The port's ability to handle increased container traffic with high productivity is a testament to our ability to handle rising cargo volumes both reliably and efficiently.”
