Our company’s roots were formed in defining seaport security solutions post 9/11. Our analysis of ports throughout Latin America and the Middle East led us to the conclusion that true seaport security control would work best if a port could move
many of its logistics operations inland, as far away as logical, from the port’s metropolitan environment. To prove this concept Safe Ports invested in the planning and development of a large inland port in South Carolina - 1,322-acres,
to offer service to seaports in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and North Florida. The benefits: significant reduction in truck congestion near seaports, a far more secure and efficient way to process both inbound and outbound cargo
and a smart, sustainable way to unlock the economic potential of the rural inland port workforce. We succeeded and sold the site to a global leader in port development. Since then, two new inland ports have been established in SC.
Development of Inland Logistics hubs remains a core competency of our special projects team.
