The State Ports Authority announced today that they're beginning a new rail-served warehouse program that will save shippers money and reduce emissions.

According to The Post and Courier, the initiative would, "take freight such as a lumber, cotton, wood pulp and food products, and move them from railcars to containers. The goal is to build new business through the Port of Charleston and 14 nearby warehouses."

There are more details to come in tomorrow's edition of The Post and Courier and we'll be sure to forward you along to get all the information as it is released.
