as part of the effort to double the on-dock capacity at the Garden
City Terminal in Savannah.
The Georgia project construction is scheduled to begin in
December and take more than two years to complete. A separate
project was approved to create more truck capacity and speed
connections to I-95.
On the West Coast, commissioners at the Port of Oakland
gave tentative approval to a deal with CenterPoint Properties to
develop an on-terminal logistics center
North Carolina also has inland terminal activity. One facility,
offering a neutral chassis pool, is in Charlotte. Another facility
is located in the Piedmont Triad area, near Winston-Salem and
Greensboro, with service listed by dozens of motor carriers and
3PLs.
CSX also has announced plans to build a rail-served terminal
for domestic and international freight in Rocky Mount, North
Carolina, along its Northeast-Southeast main line.

"Inland ports serve as a valuable
extension of a deep-water port."
- Bethann Rooney, assistant director, Port Department,
Port Authority of New York & New Jersey
There are no inland terminals in Florida, but Florida East
Coast Railway emphasizes its ability to move freight to inland
locations beyond the state, using an on-dock rail facility in Miami.
The advent of electronic logging devices may alter inland
ports' service capabilities.

Harris believes the shorter inland port trips compared to
deep-water facility runs create an advantage for motor carriers
and their customers after ELDs become mandatory.

Different Market
Rooney said inland ports' longer runs represent a different
market from port drayage.
"We believe inland ports will be boosted more by the Panama
Canal, the Bayonne Bridge Navigational Clearance Project and
ocean carriers deploying larger vessels to the East Coast and
rates that are competitive with the West Coast," she said.
On the West Coast, the inland port concept hasn't taken hold
yet, although it is being looked at with increasing interest.
"We have been exploring for the past year whether an inland
port makes sense for us, but I can't provide any specifics,"
said Tara Mattina, a spokeswoman for the Northwest Seaport
Alliance. "We're not far enough along in the exploration."
In Southern California, the Port of Los Angeles signed an
agreement with Merced County California's Board of Supervisors
to encourage cargo investment and development supported by
an inland facility called the Mid-California International Trade
District, which is served by BNSF.
The Port of Long Beach doesn't have an inland port partner, a
spokesman said.
The Port of Oakland, which is developing an in-terminal transloading facility, offers an inland service in the form of a container
yard in French Camp, California, operated by Shippers Transport
Express, said port spokesman Mike Zampa.
