One of the biggest contributors to the Georgia economy are the ports of Savannah and Brunswick. Savannah has two deepwater terminals and has the largest single-terminal container facility in North America. Brunswick has three deepwater terminals and is known as the fastest growing auto and heavy machinery port in North America.
Not only are cargo ships a common sight along the Georgia coast, but the two main ports pride themselves on being situated near central train tracks and highways, perfect for distributing goods all over the southeast.
Shipping has been the best way to transport goods for hundreds of years, and that trend isn’t stopping anytime soon. Georgia’s two ports will only continue to grow and improve with the times, providing thousands of jobs to the state and sending it directly to the forefront of the shipping world.
