South Carolina Ports anticipate a continued rebound in fiscal year 2021 and noted strength with inland ports and vehicles in February.

Inland Port Greer had a record February with strong cargo volumes – 14,418 rail moves, up nearly 5% year-over-year. Greer has handled 102,772 rail moves thus far in fiscal year 2021, up nearly 3% year-over-year.

“As retail imports continue to boom during the pandemic, the ability to quickly move goods from ships to the hinterland via rail is paramount,” SC Ports CEO Jim Newsome said. “Cargo owners benefit from SC Ports’ fast import transit to population centers — with intermodal imports arriving at the rail heads within 24 hours — and overnight rail service to Inland Port Greer and Inland Port Dillon.”

Inland Port Dillon reported 2,823 rail moves in February and 24,593 rail moves fiscal-year-to-date, up 7.4% year-over-year.

Vehicle volumes remained steady as automakers continue to see strong demand globally. SC Ports handled 17,555 vehicles at Columbus Street Terminal in February. SC Ports has handled 165,528 vehicles, up nearly 11% from the same time the year prior.
