Inland Port Dillon
A game-changer for our region, the inland port is essentially the Port of Charleston right here in our region. With competitive drayage rates, intermodal rail service, and easy access to I-95, Inland Port Dillon will reduce logistics costs for port-related logistics companies located within the region.
Proximity to the Port of Charleston
In addition to the inland port, we are also close to the Port of Charleston. Parts of our region are less than an hour from a deep water port terminal. The port can accommodate the largest cargo ships on the ocean and is served by most of the major ocean carriers with numerous routes to Europe and Asia.
Major Interstate Corridor Access
Our region has sites with direct access or close proximity to the major interstate corridors of I-95 North/South (Maine to Florida), I-20 East/West (South Carolina to Texas), and future I-73 North/South (Michigan to South Carolina).
With more than 350 track miles within our region and with the largest CSX rail yard in South Carolina being located here, robust railroad service is readily available. In addition, several shortline railroads serve large portions of the region as well.
Regional Transportation Infrastructure
Not only do we have two interstates with a third one planned, we also have an extensive network of four-lane divided highways within the region that make moving people and cargo as easy as possible. Most of these roads have 60 MPH speeds and some are limited access.
Proximity to Airports
The region is home to two commercial airports, the Florence Regional Airport and the Myrtle Beach International Airport. Both facilities connect the region to the world with daily direct and connecting flights. Airlines serving the region include Allegiant, American, Continental, Delta, Porter, Spirit, United, and West Jet.
With nearly 20 major distribution centers dotting the region and material moving occupations such as forklift certifications being offered at our technical colleges, the NESA region has an experienced workforce that is familiar with the fast-paced environment of a distribution center. In fact, almost all of the major distribution centers in the region have grown in both size and employment since they located here, a testament both to our workforce and to the logistical advantages of being in the NESA region.
