Ed Miller Helps #KeepCargoMoving 

Ed Miller doesn’t know what is in the containers he moves, but he knows his role in moving them helps to keep the economy in motion. Miller has been a driver operator at the Georgia Ports Authority’s Garden City Terminal for nearly 15 years. 

“It’s a small part of a big picture but I feel like I’m providing a service for people not only in Georgia, but the entire nation in working at this economic engine that is GPA,” Miller said. 

Miller is just one of the hundreds of Georgia Ports Authority employees whose work during the COVID-19 pandemic is helping to keep critical supplies moving. 

Climbing off of his bright yellow lift, Miller talked about how things have changed since the COVID-19 pandemic began. He described social distancing between co-workers, equipment cleaning and hand sanitizing. But, what hasn’t changed is the service GPA employees are providing. 

“We’re still providing a service to our customers,” Miller said. “Getting everyone in and out as safely and as quickly as possible.” 

Thank you, Ed Miller, along with the hundreds of other GPA employees who #KeepCargoMoving.
