Charleston Harbor now has the deepest harbor on the East Coast at 52 feet. The deepened harbor and widened channels enable fully loaded container ships to access SC Ports terminals any time, any tide. The depth supports first-in-calls and last port-of-calls, seamlessly handling ships filled with large volumes of imports and heavy exports. SC Ports’ modern terminals are equipped with new ship-to-shore cranes to quickly move cargo on and off vessels, and efficient port operations ensure berth fluidity for vessels calling on the Port of Charleston.
