Impressive Infrastructure

Savannah’s ideal location on the Atlantic Ocean in the southeastern part of the United States puts 65 percent of the U.S. population within a two-day drive by ground, water, rail or air.
Just as any successful business has many moving parts, infrastructure in the Savannah region comprises a multitude of critical factors that all come together for the ideal offering. But it’s not enough to just ‘have’ an impressive infrastructure; we are continually seeking ways to improve it as well.

Port of Savannah at a Glance

Operated by the Georgia Ports Authority, the Port of Savannah is home to the largest single-terminal container facility of its kind in North America and is the third busiest container port gateway in the nation serving 35 weekly services, the most in the U.S. South Atlantic. The Port of Savannah handled 5.4 million TEUs in fiscal year 2023 and will reach 12 million TEUs capacity by 2030. The port is located within 300 miles of 37.2 million residents, 11 major metro areas, eight major international airports and five major ports.

Investment in the Port of Savannah brings growth and opportunity

With more than $4.5 billion in infrastructure projects planned in port and intermodal infrastructure over the next decade, Georgia Ports Authority is investing in projects to enhance what Georgia Ports President and CEO Griff Lynch described as the four key components to a successful port operation: berth space, yard capacity, trucking gate fluidity and intermodal connectivity.

“We are always focused on growth. We want to go above and beyond to build a port that handles both future growth and supply chain disruption. We are creating a safe, trusted harbor for your cargo. Leadership is being able to see what’s coming and staying ahead of it,” Lynch said during his opening keynote address. At the Georgia Ports, we are building a resilient link in the global logistics chain, one that is ready to withstand any future challenges.

The renovation of Ocean Terminal in Savannah will start coming online in 2027 and be completed by 2028 transforming the current three small berth facility into two big ship berths.  A new $29 million exit ramp for truckers direct to the highway means no traffic lights from Ocean Terminal in Savannah all the way to Atlanta. The Talmadge River bridge over the Savannah River will be heightened by the Georgia Department of Transportation by 2028 to allow larger container ships into the port. The future Savannah Container Terminal on Hutchison Island is now in the permitting phase and will create three new big ship berths when completed. These ship berth improvements combined with the recent Garden City Terminal berth one project (which opened in 2023) will deliver a total of 12 big ship berths, representing a 100% increase in big ship berth capacity over the next six years and significantly increase, yard, gate and rail capabilities.


The Savannah Hilton Head International Airport is Georgia’s second-busiest airport with 34 non-stop destinations and 70+ daily direct flights to locations including a 35 minute flight to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest and most efficient passenger airport.

The Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, which is conveniently located off I-95 just 15 miles from downtown Savannah, boasts the convenient, modern features you’ve come to expect at a larger airport without the congestion and long lines.

Even though Georgia already has one of the highest over-the-road weight allowances for southeast states, Georgia state government remains uniquely committed to continued improvements to our roads to make them more efficient and safer for businesses and civilians. Of key importance to high-capacity freight trucks are upcoming enhancements to the Interstate 95 and Interstate 16 connectors making it easier and faster for these large vehicles to enter and exit the region and keep the economy moving with them.

Most extensive rail network in the southeast
