The South Carolina Inland Port Greer handled a record 103,639 rail lifts in 2016, an increase of 38 percent over the previous calendar year, reported the South Carolina Ports Authority.

That means the inland port averaged 8,886 rail moves a month.

A total of 110,000 rail moves is projected for the Greer port in fiscal 2017.

The SCPA Board of Directors, last June, approved $2.2 million toward expansion at the inland port – $1.6 million in fiscal year 2017 and $600,000 to complete the expansion in FY 2018.

A second inland port facility is being constructed in Dillon to better serve the I-95 corridor.
