CONTAINER

4.2 Million TEUs and Beyond

The Port of Savannah is home to the largest single-terminal container facility of its kind in North America, encompassing more than 1,200 acres. Moving millions of tons of containerized cargo annually, Savannah is also the third-busiest container gateway in the U.S., providing greater scheduling flexibility and market reach with direct links to I-95 and I-16, on-terminal rail, and 37 weekly container ship calls. The Port of Savannah is the most westerly port on the Atlantic seaboard, providing shorter transit times and greater efficiency for cargo destined for major inland markets. A hundred miles closer to Atlanta than any other port, Savannah offers superior connections to multiple markets by road and rail.

Our advantages make Savannah ideal for container cargo and fast distribution to consumers and manufacturers.
