GPA’s Mega Rail Project Now Operational

The Port of Savannah is the Southeast’s busiest intermodal gateway. However, the Georgia Ports Authority is making a series of infrastructure improvements that set the stage to capture greater market share.

Key to expanding rail service is the Mason Mega Rail Terminal, a project linking Garden City Terminal’s two rail yards.

Phase I of the project is now operational, allowing GPA to build and receive up to six 10,000-foot-long trains on terminal. Upon full completion, the rail expansion will improve efficiency and increase terminal rail lift capacity to 2 million TEUs per year. The capacity for longer trains builds density into the system and enables rail providers CSX and Norfolk Southern to deliver faster, more frequent rail service to major markets such as Memphis and Chicago.

Bolstering Intermodal Strengths

From ship to shore to on-terminal rail, the speed and efficiency of GPA’s intermodal services are unmatched. With the addition of the Mason Mega Rail Terminal, service to inland markets becomes more competitive.

  • GPA already features 27 trains per week to and from locations around the Southeast. Added capacity will provide new options, delivering reliable, consistent access to additional markets.
  • Savannah offers the fastest westward transit times in the South Atlantic region.
  • Port of Savannah customers moving containers by rail enjoy superior speed and reliability, with most cargo moving from vessel to rail within 24 hours.
  • Savannah rail providers Norfolk Southern and CSX Transportation provide doublestack container trains along the entire route between Savannah and the Midwest.
  • Savannah rail providers Norfolk Southern and CSX Transportation provide doublestack container trains along the entire route between Savannah and the Midwest.

  • As the first port of call on many Panama Canal shipping services, the Port of Savannah provides additional assurance of on-time cargo arrival.
