SC Inland Port exceeds goals

The South Carolina Inland Port met and exceeded goals during its first fiscal year of operation.

The port in Greer handled 42,555 rail moves, trumping a previously set goal of 40,000. Container lifts more than doubled, increasing from 1,711 in January to 3,741 in December.

By the conclusion of last year, the City of Greer issued 2,623 permits and conducted 7,875 inspections, generating more than $117 million in construction permits.

Of those permits, $51 million were commercial and $44 million were residential.

Back on the road

Sue Hollingsworth stood overjoyed outside Greer’s D&D Motors last Thursday morning as she was handed the keys to a “like new” reconditioned 2012 Kia Forte.

“I love it,” she said with a smile, holding back tears.
