Home > About the Port

SC Ports owns and operates the Port of Charleston, Port of Georgetown, Inland Port Greer and Inland Port Dillon. As a top 10 U.S. container port, SC Ports ensures the efficient movement of cargo between South Carolina and global markets.

SC Ports proactively invests in infrastructure ahead of demand. SC Ports has invested more than $2 billion in recent years to enhance capabilities and capacity, yielding modern terminals, new cargo capacity, the deepest harbor on the East Coast and an expansive rail network.

More critical infrastructure investments are planned, including developing near-dock rail at the Port of Charleston, further speeding goods to market.

SC Ports serves as a vital economic engine for the Southeast. In South Carolina, port operations support 1 in 10 jobs and generate a $63.4 billion annual economic impact.
