Main Ports in Georgia

We have included helpful information about the main port cities in Georgia. We represent workers at these ports and who work on vessels departing from these areas:

  1. Port of Savannah, Georgia is located at the mouth of the Savannah River on the state's Atlantic Ocean coast. It is a key industrial seaport and has served a vital role in the city's economy through the years. The port's facilities line both sides of the Savannah River approximately 18 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. In 2007, the port handled nearly 19.5 million tons of cargo. The two main terminals serving the port are the Garden City Terminal and the Ocean Terminal. The Port of Savannah is operated by the Georgia Ports Authority.
