U.S. Ports See Costly Delays as Cargo Ships,Volumes Grow

April 30, 2015
The Georgia Ports Authority is spending about $1.5 billion over the next decade to improve crane operations, storage facilities and other port infrastructure. The state of Georgia is spending another $120 million on road improvements near the port, to be completed in 2016. As a result shippers say the port, the second-busiest by container volume on the East Coast last year, operates smoothly regularly handling big vessels stacked with cargo for companies such as IKEA and Target Corp.

“Over 10 new distribution centres have opened recently near the port, taking advantage of our facilities,”says Curis Foltz, Exe.Dir. of GPA. Last year total capacity of the D.C. market totalled approximately 280,000 square metres. “The market has heated up significantly over the past 2 to 3 years,” he added. “I think this will continue as supply chain managers look not for an exclusive switch of shipping their products to the East Coast, but for opportunities to service customers in Southeast.”

"We have been serving a lot of new customers because of several of the anomalies in the U.S. market disturbing supply chains this year,” Curtis Foltz told Global Atlanta. "Those customers, we think, are extremely pleased with the service they have received and we think those customers will stay with us."
