SC Ports Authority Exceed Ship Traffic Expectations

On Wednesday, November 19, South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) announced that the October 2014 port traffic was not only above the figures from last year, but above the set expectations. SCPA president and CEO Jim Newsome stated, "While we are pleased with the strong levels of growth, we expect this growth to moderate in the last two months of the year and into next year. We do believe that the South Atlantic port market will continue to outperform the U.S. port market due to strength in manufacturing along with overall regional growth."

Newsome also discussed his gratitude for the statewide support for harbor deepening during the public comment period, stating, "We are grateful for the positive comments received concerning the Charleston harbor deepening study. Upon completion, the project will give Charleston the deepest harbor on the U.S. East Coast.”
