Rail extends GPA's reach
The Port of Savannah’s Garden City Terminal is already the South Atlantic region’s busiest intermodal gateway, handling 38 trains per week of import and export cargo. By 2020, the Mason Mega Rail project will deliver the largest intermodal rail facility for a port authority in North America. Other GPA terminals, including Ocean Terminal in Savannah as well as the Brunswick terminals of Mayor’s Point and Colonel’s Island also provide direct rail service. The Colonel’s Island Auto Port offers two Class I rail roads to destinations in the Midwest, Gulf states and across the country all the way to California. The CSX Transportation and the Norfolk Southern connect to the Myd Harris Rail Yard on Colonel’s Island via the Golden Isles Terminal Rail Road, which provides all rail switching services on Colonel’s Island.
