Inland Ports

South Carolina’s Inland Port Greer, located a little over fifty (50) minutes from Pickens County, is an innovative, intermodal rail facility that delivers the benefits of a coastal marine terminal many miles inland. The South Carolina Ports Authority owns and operates these facilities which allows cargo owners to minimize their inland expense while enhancing flexibility and efficiency. Cargo owners realize savings on variable costs such as container per diems, chassis rental, and demurrage. For firms interested in lowering their carbon footprint, these facilities allow shippers to reduce carbon emissions up to 80% vs. all truck service.

Timing is everything. A dedicated Norfolk Southern train runs six (6) days per week and provides overnight service in both directions to and from the Charleston harbor. Inland Port Greer gives you unprecedented flexibility and control with next-day availability of containers, which works for manufacturers running tight production lines. Read More
