From warehouse
to international ports.

Take advantage of distribution & logistics in South Carolina

South Carolina has the infrastructure network in place to make business happen.

South Carolina has one of the nation's fastest-growing container ports, two innovative inland ports, 2,300 miles of rail lines and more than 41,000 miles of state-maintained highways. Because of these assets, the Palmetto State has become internationally-known, not only for making things and making them well, but also for our skill in getting those things where they need to go.

From 2017–2023, transportation, distribution and logistics (TDL)-related firms announced capital investments of $2.1 billion in South Carolina. To accommodate this growth, South Carolina has been taking steps to ensure that our TDL capabilities exceed expectations. Evidence of our commitment is the project to deepen the Charleston Harbor to 52 feet, making it the deepest shipping channel in the Southeast.
