Jim Newsome, President & CEO of the South Carolina Ports Authority, said this latest record-setting vessel demonstrates what is happening in the shipping industry now and into the future.

“Big ships are here today, and more are coming,” said Newsome. “Based on the attractive economics, carriers will continue to deploy larger ships in ports with the infrastructure to efficiently handle them. With deep channels and a $1.3-billion capital plan -- including a new terminal -- Charleston will continue to strengthen its capabilities to handle big ships.”
