Georgia Tech President G.P. “Bud” Peterson said the university is driving technological advances
In the summer of 2017, we made our ninth annual tour of Georgia, traveling almost 1,000 miles through 44 counties and visiting 12 cities throughout our state. We began our state tour in Brunswick, where we visited the Colonel’s Island Ro/Ro (Roll-on/Roll-off ) terminal, one of four Port of Brunswick terminals operated by the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA), a key contributor to the state’s economy. Colonel’s Island is one of the nation’s busiest Ro/Ro terminals and is very impressive. When we visited with Georgia Ports Authority General Manager of Operations Bill Dawson and GPA Manager of Governmental Affairs Lee Beckmann, we had our photo made in front of one of the many massive cargo ships. I couldn’t help but think how important our transportation and logistics industry is here in Georgia.
