Streicher opens Port of Savannah operation
Apr 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Streicher Mobile Fueling Inc has established a permanent operation in the Port of Savannah GA area, a strategic crossroads for the company's customers traveling the Interstate 16 and I-95 corridors into the port and points in northern Florida.
Richard E Gathright, president and chief executive officer, said, “The Port of Savannah is one of the busiest and fastest-growing waterborne freight gateways for international shipments in the world, handling well over 2.7 million TEUs (20-foot equivalent, a container measurement standard) in 2005 and making it the fifth-largest container port in the United States in 2005. Its proximity to two major interstates, 14 million square feet of retail distribution and warehousing space, a logistics-friendly local government and workforce, and service by two major railroads (CSX and Norfolk Southern) are all compelling reasons for companies to relocate to the area.”
