Two Southeast U.S. ports are seeking to expand container capacity in a bid to reach customers needing
access to the Southeast and Midwest markets. Port of Savannah to expand container capacity by an
additional 1.6 million TEUs GPA?s Peak Capacity Project, is currently under construction and will provide 800,000 twenty-foot equivalent container units of annual capacity at the Port of Savannah, according to GPA. The project will be completed in two phases, with the first coming online in December.
