The port of Savannah is planning a $410 million (€389 million) development of one of its terminals in the USA to make room for the loading and unloading of larger ships.  

The Georgia Ports Authority’s governing board approved the project, under a plan to develop and expand Savannah’s capacity for cargo containers, to more than 50% by 2025.  

Ocean Terminal will be converted to handling cargo in containers as part of the development. The terminal’s berth will also be upgraded with room to service two large ships simultaneously. 

The port authority’s plan to add capacity for an additional 3 million container units by 2025 will allow Savannah to be able to better deal with the next arrival of multiple cargoes at one time.  

The expansion will be built in phases, with the first phase expected to open in 2025. The second is expected to open in 2026.
