Authorities have opened the new Appalachian Regional Port near Chatsworth, Georgia.
The inland port will offer breakbulk transport solutions across the North Georgia, Northeast Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky region. It will be operated by the Georgia Ports Authority and served by CSX.
“The ARP is part of our Network Georgia initiative that brings services from the coast to communities around the state. The new inland terminal will provide the same, superior quality services our customers have come to rely on: congestion-free, easy access, expedited handling and reliability,” said Griff Lynch, GPA executive director.
The GPA operates Georgia’s primary deepwater ports of Savannah and Brunswick, as well as inland barge operations in Bainbridge and Columbus.
