Informative Briefing on Georgia Ports


The August Luncheon at Cohen’s Retreat for Savannah Buy Local was very informative as Lee Beckmann from the Georgia Ports Authority spoke about the port in our area and throughout the state. He stated that the port employs 440,000 direct and indirect jobs and that our port is the 4th busiest U.S. container Port and is the fastest growing U.S. container port over the past 10 years (CY 2008 – 2018). He also stated that the dredging of the river is around 50% complete. I was honored to meet more business owners from Savannah and Pooler, even businesses that want to expand to our great city.
