Shipping News

The commercial viability of the Port-Of-Call in Charleston is arguably the single most important element when it comes to South AND North Carolina Economic Development. So, with a double-digit decline in Port volume recently, the new SC Ports Chief Executive won’t have too much wiggle room in not getting things ship-shape and sailing straight quickly. This time on CBR, SC Ports Authority President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Newsome articulates the challenges dead ahead, including politically, and why he is confident in the returned preeminence of the Charleston Port. Michael Byrnes of NxGen Power and Jeff McKay from the SC North Eastern Strategic Alliance begin the dialogue.

  1. Excellent blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any forums that cover the same
    topics discussed in this article? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Cheers!

    Wish we did…..SC Biz gives some great coverage of the SC Ports System. But beyond that, not sure what other resources you might try. Thanks so much for your interest and comment.
