The Seaboard Marine vessel AS Savanna on March 3 became the first dedicated container ship to call on the Port of Savannah’s Ocean Terminal in Georgia.

With a carrying capacity of 1,713 20-foot-equivalent units (TEU), the AS Savanna handled a total of 550 TEUs of import and export cargo while calling on the terminal, Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) officials said in a press release.

The GPA has added 210,000 TEUs of annual capacity at the terminal through an expanded container operation.

The expanded container service at Ocean Terminal provides direct access to U.S. Highway 17, linking the port with Interstates 95 and 16 for expedited transport to area distribution centers and inland markets. CSX and Norfolk Southern Railway serve the terminal.
