It will technically be the state's third such facility after the first one opened in Cordele (privately funded) in 2011. The first state funded inland port opened this year in Chatsworth in NW Georgia and the new facility in Gainesville will serve NE Georgia.

Quote:
Located in the Gateway Industrial Centre on GA 365, the new 104-acre terminal will provide logistics solutions for customers across Northeast Georgia. The facility’s services will draw from the 1.5-million population in Hall, Gwinnett and surrounding counties.

“The business world is getting closer to Northeast Georgia. The new inland port terminal will shorten the supply chain for many manufacturers, processors and distributors in the region,” said Tim Evans, vice president of economic development for the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce. “Accessing the container port by rail can save time and money, because rail deliveries to and from the Port of Savannah can shorten truck delivery times from approximately seven hours to less than 30 minutes. Direct access to the Port of Savannah, the fastest growing container port in the U.S., is an innovation in logistics infrastructure that provides many of our existing businesses a competitive advantage.”
