CHARLESTON (June 28, 2024) — Shipyard Creek, a unique transload property in Charleston, South Carolina, offers a state-of-the-art solution for retail importers seeking efficient container movement. Situated on a 42-acre site, this soon-to-be-delivered property features a port-adjacent cross-dock facility designed specifically to meet the needs of major importers.

With an impressive 153 dock doors and 724 trailer parking spaces, Shipyard Creek has the capacity to handle a high velocity of container movement. The property's strategic orientation to the nearby Leatherman Terminal ensures seamless access and streamlined operations.

"South Carolina Ports has invested heavily in state-of-the-art infrastructure that will keep the port internationally competitive for years to come,” stated John Knox Porter, CEO of Capital Development Partners. ”There is nothing like Shipyard Creek Logistics Center on the East Coast of the United States."

South Carolina Ports is a critical gateway for the Southeast market. It offers highly productive port service, an inland port network and rail connections to increase the speed of goods to market. SC Ports offers shippers capacity, reliability and flexibility for their supply chains.

Located within a day's drive to major markets such as Atlanta, Charlotte and Raleigh, Shipyard Creek provides exceptional access for businesses, reaching over 50% of the Southeastern population within a two-day drive. The property's advanced infrastructure, including on-site storage parking that can stack up to five shipping containers, optimizes efficiency and fosters tenant growth.

"Shipyard Creek offers a unique opportunity for importers looking to capitalize on the Southeastern port growth," said Lee Allen, representative at JLL. "Its superior features, prime location and exceptional connectivity make it an ideal choice for businesses seeking efficient container movement and distribution."
