Connecting Georgia to the world as the pace of trade increases

By Ryan Macdonald, GPA Manager of Strategic Operations and Planning

The GPA has developed and is in the process of implementing a new transportation initiative.  It is a multimodal operating plan that takes into consideration the port’s statewide logistics obligation, as well as a more recent role, which has evolved over the past couple of decades, of becoming a strategic international gateway for our entire country.

Electric Cranes approved for use at Appalachian Regional Port

Electric Cranes approved for use at Appalachian Regional Port

Clean-running machines cut fuel consumption, contribute to sustainable operations

The Georgia Ports Authority Board on May 22 approved the purchase of three electric rubber-tired gantry cranes for the Appalachian Regional Port in Chatsworth, Ga. 

The decision to install eRTGs in Chatsworth continues a transition begun at the Port of Savannah’s Garden City Terminal. GPA’s initial eRTG project was the first installation of its kind at a port in North America. Electric RTGs virtually eliminate emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and particulate matter compared to diesel-powered RTGs.  Through efforts such as electrifying ship-to-shore cranes and refrigerated container racks, the Port of Savannah avoids the use of more than 5.4 million gallons of diesel annually.
