Indications are showing that beneficial cargo owners (BCOs) have a strong interest in using inland ports, which allow BCOs to transport containers via rail or short-sea rather than moving goods and commodities to and from seaports via trucks, thus reducing costs and emissions. In South Carolina, rail traffic to Inland Port Greer and Inland Port Dillon was flat for the fiscal year ended June 30, despite a 3.4 percent decline in pier containers in the same period. Inland Port Dillon traffic rose 9.7 percent year over year to 32,453 containers, while Inland Port Greer’s volume fell 2.1 percent to 140,155 containers.
