Hogan Construction Group of Greenville has been awarded contracts for the support facilities for the South Carolina Inland Port in Greer.
The port container traffic and logistical control facilities include:
Billboards showing two feet poking out from a white sheet in a morgue have the tagline, “I raced a train and all I got was this lousy toe tag.” Another billboard shows a cast on a person’s leg with the caption, “I raced a train and all I got was this lousy full-body cast.”
The graphic billboards are part of Norfolk Southern's Train Your Brain public safety program, which warns motorists and pedestrians of the grave consequences of disregarding railroad signals and trespassing on railroad property. Norfolk Southern is bringing the campaign to East Tennessee – Knoxville, Chattanooga, and the Tri-Cities region – this year to remind people to use their brains, and be smart and alert around trains.
G&P Trucking, a Gaston-based company has purchased an additional 10-acre site in Greer. The acquisition and expansion of G&P’s trucking presence in Greer, where it has a 14 acre full service terminal, is a direct result of the new inland port that is being opened by the South Carolina Ports Authority later this fall.
The new inland port is designed to improve the efficiency of container movements between the Port of Charleston, the upstate region and neighboring states.
Traffic will enter the South Carolina Inland Port in Greer on the “GSP Logistics Parkway” and will connect to the port operations via “International Commerce Way”.
The GSP Logistics Parkway will service all traffic entering and exiting the J. Verne Smith Parkway (Hwy. 80), GreerToday.com has learned. The Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport Board of Commissioners recommended today the entry point’s name, pending Spartanburg County approval.
The South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) and Nordic Cold Storage, LLC have reached a settlement concerning the Nordic facility lease in Greer.
According to the settlement, which was approved by the SCPA Board today, the SCPA will purchase the balance of Nordic’s lease term of 11 years for $2.2 million. Nordic will terminate its leasehold interest and vacate the Greer location at the site of the South Carolina Inland Port.
