By: | at 08:23 AM | Ports & Terminals  

At approximately 2:45 this afternoon the Savannah River crested below the docks at the Garden City Terminal, and no water damage reported as a result of the storm.

In addition, hurricane straps installed on empty containers and ship-to-shore cranes prevented any cargo, crane or other infrastructure damage.

Assessment of the other facilities including Brunswick are currently under way.

GPA’s critical workforce will be returning tomorrow (Tuesday) morning to prepare the terminal for cargo operations.

Throughout this evening and tomorrow morning GPA will be working with many logistics partners to determine re-opening of the port and river channel. As of now, it is expected that truck gates will resume operation Wednesday morning.
