The Savannah Port has posted a record year in individual units and total tonnage moved, according to the Georgia Ports Authority.
The port handled more than 3.14 million 20-foot container units and 29.4 million tons of freight in the 2014 fiscal year, which ended in June.
The Georgia Ports Authority says that’s a 6.3 and 8 percent increase, respectively, compared to last year. It’s also the first time the port moved more than 3 million container units.
Port Authority Director Curtis Foltz attributes the gains in part to an improving economy.
