The area has excellent connections to other parts of the Southeast and the nation by bus, rail and air, with Savannah’s bustling, state-of-the-art airport featuring daily non-stop flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington, D.C., New York, Newark, Chicago, Miami, Memphis, Cincinnati, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit and Houston.
Savannah’s port — which is the fourth-busiest and the fastest-growing container facility in the United States — serves more than 150 countries and offers shipping to more than 300 ports. Access of the port to rail lines and major highways enables Savannah to capitalize on intermodal transportation — the movement by ship, train and truck of massive cargo containers that do not need to be unpacked between their points of origin and their final destinations.
