South Carolina Ports (SC Ports) handled 193,085 TEUs and 107,084 pier containers in March, processing 15,692 vehicles.
In the last month, SC Ports also honoured the five-year anniversary of Inland Port Dillon by handling a record amount of containers at the rail-served inland port.
With almost 4,300 containers handled, March was the biggest month in Inland Port Dillon’s history. This is a 16% increase over the previous record, which was achieved in December 2022. In March, inland ports Greer and Dillon processed a total of 17,534 rail shipments.
The inspiration for Inland Port Dillon stemmed from the success of SC Ports’ first inland port, which opened in Greer in 2013.
SC Ports invested in its second inland port in Dillon, which opened in 2018 and is anchored by Harbour Freight Tools.
