Refrigerated Cargo in CHS A Growing Trend

Since 2009, refrigerated cargo at the Port of CHS has increased by nearly 40% to about 45,000 containers.  David Wren has the story here that includes a 12-fold increase in refrigerated storage square footage in the area.  And port-deepening efforts (from 45′ to 52′) bode well for CHS for more growth as cold storage weighs lots more (30 tons in a 40′-long container) and heavier ships need deeper ports.
