Sea Ports

Port of Charleston


South Carolina’s seaports have been one of the state’s most vital resources for hundreds of years. Today, the South Carolina Ports Authority operates the state’s vital seaport assets in Charleston and Georgetown, a $45 billion-a-year economic engine generating hundreds of thousands of jobs in the state and beyond. Operating for the public’s benefit, the Ports Authority exists to drive economic investment to South Carolina.

The Port of Charleston is one of the nation’s largest container ports. More than 2,000 ships and barges from over 40 different lines use the port.  Less than a 90-minute drive from Lexington County, local business and industry can import and export goods with ease via direct access to the port via I-26.
