NEW MOTOR CARRIER GUIDE TO SOUTH CAROLINA PORTS

Thank you for your interest in helping us keep cargo moving through the South Carolina Ports!

We hope the following guidelines will assist you in navigating our policies, procedures and safety guidelines.

  1. Safety FIRST. All drivers are always required to wear safety vests within our gates. Cell phone and electronic devices cannot be used while in motion.
  2. All drivers must have a TWIC (Transportation Worker Identification Credential) card. New card assignments can be obtained from the United States Transportation Safety Administration.  More information is available at: https://www.tsa.gov/for-industry/twic or (855) 347-8371.
  3. All motor carrier companies must have a current SCAC (Standard Carrier Alpha Code). SCAC applications can be obtained here from the National Motor Freight Traffic Association. More information is available at: http://www.nmfta.org/ or (703) 838-1831.
  4. All motor carrier companies must participate and be in good standing with UIIA (Uniform Intermodal Interchange and Facilities Access Agreement). More information is available at: https://www.uiia.org/ or (877) 438-8442.
  5. All motor carrier companies must register (and provide their SCAC certificate) with SC Ports’ Go!Port system. This gives you the ability to create pre-advise (aka PIN or Gate Code) which is required to gate in or gate out of our facilities. Registration is free and can be obtained from the South Carolina Ports Authority. This is specific to the Wando Welch Terminal, the North Charleston Terminal and the SCIP-Greer terminal.

  6. For access to our Hugh Leatherman Terminal, all motor carrier companies must register with Port Manager system. This gives you the ability to create pre-Gate (aka PIN or Gate Code) which is required to gate in/out of our Hugh Leatherman terminal.
