On-Terminal Rail Access
We offer shippers direct access to rail ramps on-terminal, eliminating costly drays to distribution centers or other destinations. With guaranteed on-dock intermodal connections, we allow for more daily departures, faster train turnover and on-time service.
Speed To Market
The Port of Savannah offers Class I rail service via both CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern to and from major population centers in the U.S. Southeast, Gulf and Midwest. We have the fastest westward transit times in the South Atlantic region, including overnight service to a 5-state area — Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Fewer rail miles equal significant savings — less transit and storage costs, a shorter supply chain and overall reduced inventory costs.
The new Highway 307 overpass and a $6.5 million six-track rail yard expansion at the Mason Intermodal Container Transfer Facility boosts efficiency for both truck and rail transport.
