Positive developments form CN in Memphis with much wider implications.

''CN Memphis Intermodal terminal remains on schedule to transition to a grounded operation for ISO containers at 00:01 March 2nd, 2019. Surface upgrades have been completed, which has doubled the ground space available within the terminal. New cranes are on site and ready for service, and terminal staff is prepared for 24/7 support during the transition.

We do anticipate the initial transition from wheeled to grounded operation to take 7-14 days; during this period we encourage our customers to check the status of all containers arriving Memphis on our website, prior to dispatching a truck, to determine chassis status.''

Port of Savannah Continues Impressive and Ambitious Expansion.

Georgia Ports will invest $2 billion in capital expenditures upgrading and expanding the Garden City Terminal—Savannah’s container port—over the next decade and will nearly double its annual traffic to eight million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) by 2028. A Georgia Ports official said that new inland intermodal facilities and ship turn times under 30 hours allowed Savannah to compete with West Coast ports on cost and speed to the Midwest.

Savannah’s Garden City Terminal was the most efficient and fastest growing port in the United States. Currently, Savannah’s traffic (4.36 million TEUs in 2018) makes it the fourth busiest port in North America, after the Ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, and New York/New Jersey.

The Garden City Terminal will grow its capacity ahead of demand and prevent congestion and delays by embarking on a series of large-scale infrastructure projects, including a $200 million Mega Rail terminal that will add 97,000 feet of track and double the port’s rail capacity. Truck gates will be widened and slots for more than 10,000 containers will be added.

Efficiency is key to the port’s capacity growth. Savannah will have 42 ship-to-shore cranes by 2028, each of them capable of moving 37-42 containers per hour, while cranes at West Coast ports handle only 24-28 boxes per hour.

Vital to achieving that level of service is the network of intermodal facilities, called “inland ports,” that Georgia Ports is constructing throughout the state. The Appalachian Regional Port (ARP) opened in August 2018 in Crandall, Georgia, in the northwest region of the state. The facility is directly connected to the Garden City Terminal by 388 miles of CSX track and has easy access to I-75 and U.S. 411. The Cordele Inland Port in Cordele-Crisp County provides a direct rail connection from Savannah to markets in southwest Georgia, southern Alabama, and western Florida. Georgia Ports plans to build a third inland port somewhere along the Georgia - Alabama border.
