[Brief] A video recently released by the Georgia Ports Authority shows the 6,600 TEU container ship Maersk Seletar transiting the Savannah River en route to Port of Savannah. GPA is handling ever-larger container vessels and ever-higher volumes, serving up to eight ships each day with berth productivity of up to 220 moves per hour. The port is dredging the Savannah River to 47 feet in order to accommodate deeper-draft Neopanamax ships. In addition, at the authority’s Port of Brunswick auto terminal on Colonel’s Island, business is expanding rapidly: more than 200 acres of new paved space are in the design or development stages, bringing auto processing space to 547 acres.
