Georgia Ports Authority (GPA):
• Since 1945, Georgia’s ports have served as magnets for international trade and investment, enriching the state’s economy to benefit all Georgians.
• Georgia’s deepwater ports in Savannah and Brunswick, together with inland barge operations in Bainbridge and Columbus, are Georgia’s gateways to the world. They are the critical conduits through which raw materials and finished products flow to and from destinations around the globe.
• In Georgia, we’ve taken advantage of our strategic location to become a global hub for trade, with the fourth busiest port in the nation, the most utilized airport in the world and two Class One rail lines. Named the best state in which to do business for four years in a row, Georgia is centrally located in the fastest growing region of the United States. Savannah’s position as the westernmost port on the Atlantic Coast provides shorter transit times and greater efficiency for American exports destined for markets overseas. This tour will give you a front row seat to see how the port moves 20,000 TEU’s per day! It will begin with networking and lunch while hearing a brief overview of the port and how they are growing. We will then move by bus around the port to tour the terminal, see a Crane Simulation and hopefully…get on board a vessel!
