New inland port opening in South Carolina
DILLON, S.C. (AP) — A new inland port is opening in South Carolina that’s designed to boost the economy of the northeastern part of the state.
The State Ports Authority on Monday is officially opening the port in Dillon.
The $50 million cargo-transfer hub will let trucks and trains exchange thousands of containers of cargo headed for points north along Interstate 95.
Southbound cargo could head to the Port of Charleston or elsewhere.
The port is about 130 miles north of Charleston.
The state also operates an inland port in Greer.
