Charleston Stevedoring Co. LLC (CSC), a new joint venture company to provide container terminal and stevedoring services at the Port of Charleston in South Carolina began operations earlier this week.

The three companies that formed the joint venture are Marine Terminals Corp.-East, Ceres Marine Terminals Inc. and SSA Atlantic LLC.

"The new entity will provide significant benefits to the Port of Charleston, including improved container terminal services through the consolidated operations at all berths, as well as more efficient vessel turn times and improved equipment utilization," said CSC President Dan Hall in a press release. "The combined company will optimize use of terminal capacity and improve integration between terminal, vessel and gate operations."

CSC will enhance efforts to market the Port of Charleston to a broader customer base with a focus on continued growth, said Jim Newsome, SCPA president and chief executive officer.

The Port of Charleston offers daily express intermodal and merchandise rail services through CSX and Norfolk Southern Railway.
