Location

Facilities Information:

This 5.8-acre parcel is in a prime inland gateway to the Port of Savannah for intermodal customers and businesses. Located on the Cordele Inland Port, this tract offers more than 550 feet of rail frontage and a direct 200-mile rail route to the Georgia Ports Authority’s Garden City Terminal, providing more efficient transportation options for an all-truck dray to the deepwater port. Situated on Georgia Hwy 280, with access to I-75 and GA Hwy 300, it also affords opportunities for business interests in southwest Georgia, southern Alabama, and western Florida to expand to international markets.

Summary

Historical Summary:

Inland ports have been growing in popularity in recent years as a cost-effective rail-intermodal alternative to trucks in connecting with key seaports. They provide a transportation infrastructure that helps alleviate traffic congestion and enables shippers to locate distribution, warehousing and manufacturing away from the busy port.

The Cordele Inland Port, [hyperlink underlined text to: https://gaports.com/intermodal-rail/cordele-inland-port] located about an hour’s drive south of Macon, Georgia, and 100 miles north of the Florida line, opened in 2013. It was designed to move national and international shipments more efficiently and effectively to and from the Georgia Ports Authority’s Garden City Terminal in Savannah for distribution. Cargo is transferred directly from an ocean vessel at the Port of Savannah to railcars and then transported to Cordele via rail, away from the congested port itself. The Cordele Inland Port is served by the Heart of Georgia Railroad, which interchanges with CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern Railway.

Potential Growth:

The Cordele Inland Port is supported by:
Georgia Department of Economic Development
Georgia Department of Transportation
Heart of Georgia Railroad, Georgia Central Railway, Norfolk Southern and CSX
Georgia Motor Trucking Association
Cordele, Crisp County, and surrounding Georgia counties
Global freight carriers
Prospective customers, shippers, and steamship lines

State officials have said they plan to expand the Georgia Ports Authority’s inland port infrastructure, with the goal of developing the largest intermodal complex in the eastern third of the U.S.

The Georgia Ports Authority is in the midst of a multi-year, multi-modal initiative designed to better accommodate the movement of cargo volumes, which are projected to expand as larger container vessels call at U.S. ports. The $2.5 billion plan is expected to expand the capacity of the nation’s fastest growing and single largest container terminal from 5.5 million twenty-foot equivalent unit containers (TEUs) to 8 million.
