Levi Turner thought an appropriate name for one of the three cranes at the Inland Port should be Grrrr (with 4 r’s).
So did the South Carolina Port Authority in choosing Levi’s entry as the first winner announced for the “Name the Cranes” contest. Levi won a plaque recognizing his suggestion and Chandler Creek Elementary won $500. Names for two other cranes and two empty handlers will be announced later.
As the South Carolina Inland Port was announcing the beginning of regular service for all ocean carriers and clients today, Greer Economic Development Executive Director Reno Deaton was illustrating its impact on Greer to City Council.
The first regular departure from Charleston to Greer was Tuesday, with the start of regular arrivals and departures at SCIP on Wednesday. The Greer port has spent nearly a month finessing all facets of the transportation facility.
