Cargo volumes at the South Carolina Ports Authority fell 9% year-over-year to 235,006 total TEUs in October.
Despite the lower volumes YoY, the port processed more cargo compared to the previous month, up 18%.
The port is currently expanding its Inland Port Greer to double its cargo capacity and increase rail capabilities.
"The bustling logistics hub moves cargo 24/7 for many advanced manufacturers, tire producers, apparel companies and major retailers,” Barbara Melvin, president and CEO of South Carolina Ports said in a press release. "This growth demanded an expansion to meet our customers’ needs."
