MASON MEGA RAIL
Facility expands Port of Savannah’s service area
Rail on a whole new scale
The Port of Savannah’s Garden City Terminal is the Southeast’s busiest intermodal gateway. However, the Georgia Ports Authority is making a series of infrastructure improvements that set the stage to capture greater market share in existing and new destinations for GPA. Savannah is poised to rapidly increase and expand service across an arc of inland markets, from Atlanta to Memphis, extending to St. Louis, Chicago and the Ohio Valley.
Cargo moves from vessel to rail in an industry-leading 24 hours
Increases the number of working tracks from 8 to 18
Adds 97,000 feet of new rail at Garden City Terminal, for a total of 34 miles of track
Doubles the Port of Savannah’s rail lift capacity to 1 million containers per year
Enables more frequent, direct service and unmatched reliability.
Allows GPA to better serve customers in an area now spanning from Dallas to Memphis and into the Midwest.
The first nine working tracks of Savannah’s Mason Mega Rail project are now operational. The second set of nine tracks will be commissioned in 2021. Upon completion, the 85-acre Mason Mega Rail Terminal will build and receive six 10,000-foot trains simultaneously.
