South Carolina, USA – Opening of New Inland Terminal

By: | at 09:35 AM | Channel(s): Ports & Terminals  

The South Carolina Inland Port (SCIP) in Greer begins regular service for ALL ocean carriers and clients. This major infrastructure project extends the Port of Charleston’s reach into the Interstate 85 corridor and beyond with overnight express shuttle service five days per week in both directions:

  • Westbound from Norfolk Southern Charleston to SCIP - departs Charleston Monday through Friday, with next morning 08:00 availability in Greer at SCIP.
  • Eastbound from SCIP to Norfolk Southern Charleston - departs SCIP Monday through Thursday and Saturday, with next day 12:00 availability for weekday trains and Monday 12:00 availability for Saturday train.
  • Cut-offs at both Norfolk Southern Charleston and SCIP are 17:00.

The SCIP terminal is fully operational and functional as construction concludes on support facilities - the new dedicated access road is open, all yard machines are operational, the maintenance vendor is on-site and the terminal is fully staffed.

Operating hours for receipt and delivery of containers at SCIP are 24/6, closed 6 pm Saturday through 8 pm Sunday.
