The Port of Savannah handled more than 478,000 twenty-foot equivalent container units in May, a nearly 42 percent increase compared to last year. It was the second busiest month in the history of Georgia’s largest port and the 10th consecutive month of positive year-over-year growth.

Brian Kemp. “Thanks to conservative leadership and the fact that we never really shut down Georgia businesses during the pandemic, the Peach State’s economy is rebounding quickly.
