GPA expands auto terminal adding 100 acres of processing space
GEORGIA Ports Authority (GPA) executive director Griff Lynch has announced a 100-acre expansion of the Colonel's Island auto terminal, and welcomed Logistec's announcement of the completion of 221,000 square feet of wood pellet storage at GPA's East River Terminal.
"The additional 100 acres will allow GPA to grow along with our existing customers, and to attract additional carmakers to the nation's second busiest auto port," he told a gathering at the annual State of the Port address.
"This new roll-on/roll-off capacity is part of an initiative to service a growing market, while staying 20 per cent ahead of our current demand."
Twenty of the 100 acres are paved and in use by Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, while International Auto Processing has leased another 49 acres it will occupy by May 2017. Just last month, the GPA Board of Directors approved the development of a separate 30-acre parcel, which should come online in January.
The long-term plan for Colonel's Island's south side will eventually add 540 acres in GPA-owned land to the auto processing operation. Another 140 south side acres owned by Mercedes and International Auto Processing brings Brunswick's total vehicle space to 1,039 acres. "No other autoport in the nation even approaches that capacity," Mr Lynch said.
Mr Lynch announced that Logistec, an international terminal operating company, has just opened two new warehouses totalling 221,675 square feet for wood pellet storage along the Brunswick River.
"These modern buildings are a part of Logistec's commitment to upgrade and expand its dry bulk facilities in Brunswick. Our terminal is ideally suited to biomass cargo handling, and we look forward to working with the Georgia Ports Authority and our customers to meet long-term growth demands," said Madeleine Paquin, president and CEO of Logistec.
