Project to double Port of Savannah’s rail capacity
Savannah, Ga. – March 27, 2018 – The Georgia Ports Authority broke ground on its $126.7 million Mason Mega Rail Terminal Tuesday. The expansion will increase the Port of Savannah’s rail lift capacity to 1 million containers per year, and open new markets spanning an arc of cities from Memphis to St. Louis, Chicago to Cincinnati.
“Today is a great day for Georgia and the nation,” said Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. “Not only will this new intermodal facility take trucks off the road and bring our products to market with greater efficiency, but it will open a new corridor for American commerce to and from the Midwest.”
