Northeastern South Carolina is literally the exact mid-way point between New York City, NY and Miami, FL. on Interstate 95. This gives our region excellent access to major markets up and down the east coast. Also, did we mention, we are located at the eastern origin of Interstate 20, which stretches our reach westward all the way to Texas? These two interstates, mixed with our access to rail, Inland Port Dillion, and multiple airports, make our region the perfect place to do business.

Home to the largest CSX rail yard in the state, Northeastern South Carolina has more than 350 miles of rail that traverses the region. Localities across the region have made a concerted effort to identify and develop industrial sites with railroad access to reduce opportunity costs for future rail users.
Owned and operated by the South Carolina Posts Authority, Inland Port Dillon is a rail-connected extension of the Port of Charleston. With competitive drayage rates, intermodal rail service, and easy access to I-95, Inland Port Dillon reduces costs for port-related logistics companies operating in northeastern South Carolina.
Not only does our region have direct access to major domestic markets, our close proximity to major ports extends our reach to the rest of the world. The NESA region is located just north of the Port of Charleston, one of the largest ports in the United States. Our newest asset, Inland Port Dillon, along with our extensive highway and railway networks minimizes travel times to the Port of Charleston, along with the Port of Wilmington and the Port of Savannah.
Two commercial airports are located in our region, Florence Regional Airport and Myrtle Beach International Airport. We are also only a few hours’ drive from major commercial airports Charleston International, Charlotte Douglas International, and Columbia Metropolitan.
