Ongoing supply chain problems are all over the news, all over the world.  Here in Georgia, we are seeing a solution. Last week Gov. Brian Kemp and other state officials were on hand to cut the ribbon at the Georgia Ports Authority’s new Mason Mega Rail facility in Chatham County, which increases the number of working rail tracks at the Garden City Terminal from 8 to 18, adding 97,000 new feet of rail. The major expansion will double the Port of Savannah’s rail lift capacity to 1 million containers per year, and allow cargo to be moved from ship to rail in an industry-leading 24 hours.  The improved flow of cargo and additional space at Garden City Terminal has allowed the port to expedite vessel service, reducing the number of ships waiting at anchor by 40 percent. Meanwhile, the backup at the port in Los Angeles has now topped 110 ships waiting offshore.
