Three vessels working at #SCPorts Wando Welch Terminal this afternoon. In less than a year, the first phase of Hugh K. Leatherman Terminal will come online, SCPA will be able to handle four 14,000 TEU ships simultaneously, and have the ability to handle a 19,000 TEU ship.
“S.C. Ports is moving ahead with building critical infrastructure to ensure efficient operations and big-ship readiness. These investments are vital to remaining globally competitive, which benefits South Carolinians. Port operations support 1 in 10 jobs in South Carolina, and those jobs pay 32% higher than the state’s average wage, generating great economic benefits to our communities. We are proud to play a role in this.” - SCPA President and CEO Jim Newsome
