Jim Newsome delivered a glowing message to more than 400 business leaders on the impact the Inland Port at Greer plays in the state’s commerce.
“We are very much dependent on trucks. Every container in the world somehow rides a truck,” Newsome, president and CEO of the South Carolina Ports Authority, said. “They (containers) come by rail to Greer and they still have to go out by truck to somewhere else.”
The Transportation Security Administration discovered a firearm at a Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) checkpoint Sunday.
