South Carolina’s unparalleled transportation system makes it easy for companies to reach any market. The state has five interstate highways, four primary commercial airports, two Class I railroads plus several short line rail systems, the world-class Port of Charleston, and a dedicated breakbulk and bulk port facility in Georgetown.
Located halfway between New York City and Miami, South Carolina is situated within 1,000 miles of around two-thirds of the United States population. Wherever you go in South Carolina, you are within one hour of a commercial airport offering daily nonstop flights to major cities and connections worldwide. And you are never more than a two-day drive from every major East Coast market plus Detroit, Chicago and Dallas.
The natural deep-water Port of Charleston is one of the busiest container ports in the country, with five public terminals that handle cargo of all kinds. The port welcomes vessels of all sizes from more than 30 shipping lines serving 150 countries. An efficiency leader among North American ports, the Port of Charleston has the East coast’s fastest travel time from ocean to dockside.
