New SC Inland Port Getting Increased Rail Service

The new inland port slated for Dillon, SC will have five-day/week service, instead of the originally planned two-three day/ week service, authorities said.

“Forest products and agriculture products are both target export commodities for the facility,” a state ports authority spokesman said.

According to Charleston newspaper The Post and Courier:

The Upstate facility, by comparison, handled 121,761 containers in fiscal 2017, which ended June 30.
