SUPERIOR TRANSPORTATION LOGISTICS

With its world-class deepwater port, a growing international airport, and easily accessible ground transportation, Charleston County is well prepared to serve your transportation needs.


The deepest water of any port in the South Atlantic region*

With the deepest channels in the South Atlantic, regularly conducting vessels that draft up to 48 feet, and offering weekly service to more than 140 international destinations, Charleston’s world-class port is well equipped to take on any shipping challenge.
 
In fact, our port is internationally recognized for its high-efficiency rating—a rating based on speed of vessels navigating the natural harbor, availability of multiple terminals specializing in containerized, break-bulk, or rolling cargo, effective teamwork of port personnel and long shoremen, and smart time management with “truck turns.”
 
To ensure continued efficiency, the port is ever improving—with harbor deepening, development of a post-Panamax terminal, and purchase of state-of-the-art cranes and equipment to prepare for the 2014 new Panama Canal opening.

A growing international airport

With new direct routes from Southwest Airlines creating competition and forcing down rates, and with five other major carriers providing non-stop service to 16 destinations, the Charleston International Airport is growing and becoming more competitive and convenient every year. As we speak, the airport is adding six new gates and enlarging the parking deck and other surface parking areas.

Well-kept, easily-accessed ground transportation

Just a short drive up I-26…I-95, I-77, and I-85 provide direct access to North Carolina, Tennessee, New England, Miami, and connecting highways to the rest of the U.S.  In fact, Charleston offers one-day truck service to over 60 million people**.

And as for rail…the North Charleston Terminal’s on-terminal rail yard provides easy transport for containers coming from the port to an inland destination.  Plus, two class-one carriers (Norfolk Southern and CSX) and one short-line service provider (South Carolina Public Railways) offer service to strategic local and national locations.
