South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA), Southeast's deepwater port, said that five rubber-tired gantry (RTG) cranes arrived at Wando Welch Terminal to further modernize operations.

The Port has received 14 of the 24 new cranes ordered for the Wando terminal; the terminal currently has 52 RTGs overall.

Meanwhile, SCPA reported its strongest May on record, with 204,457 twenty-foot equivalent container units (TEUs) handled last month.

Fiscal year-to-date TEU volume is up 9.7%, with 2,192,689 TEUs handled since the Port's fiscal year began in July.

"Our volumes have been strong this fiscal year compared to fiscal 2018, particularly with SCPA's container business, rail dray program and inland port operations," said Jim Newsome, SCPA president and CEO.

"We plan to continue this momentum as we wrap up fiscal year 2019 at the end of June, securing our place as a top 10 container port in the U.S. I am immensely proud of our team for handling record-breaking volumes amid global trade uncertainty," he added.
