Greer Inland Port Construction Set to Begin


The S.C. State Ports Authority board authorized the port’s CEO and CFO to borrow no more than $30 million to develop, build, operate and maintain the inland port in Greer. The loan’s rate can’t exceed 5% and should be paid over at most 20 years, the board said at its last meeting of 2012.

The port is moving quickly on its inland port in Greer, ports staff said, and it expects to open Sept. 1. Crews will begin moving earth during the second or third week of January, and the inland port’s design is almost complete.

The ports authority announced plans earlier this year to build the S.C. Inland Port, linking the Port of Charleston to Greer by Norfolk Southern rail. Manufacturers throughout the Upstate and the Southeast are likely to use the facility, Ports authority CEO Jim Newsome previously said.
