South Carolina Booming as Major Distribution Hub

According to the AJOT, South Carolina will soon boast the U.S. East Coast’s deepest harbor with expanding capabilities for handling mega-containerships. The state is enjoying a boom as a preferred distribution hub, with Walmart the latest to announce plans for a commerce park about 30 miles from Port of Charleston docks. In September, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced a $21.68 million Better Utilizing Investment to Leverage Development (BUILD) grant to be used for improvements on and near the commerce park.
