Last week, Bob Robers, Senior Director of Cushman & Wakefield Atlanta’s Industrial team, shared his insights on the Port of Savannah at the Savannah Logistics Lunch. Savannah law firm HunterMaclean and the Georgia Center of Innovation for Logistics at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center on Hutchinson Island co-sponsored the luncheon and panel discussion, which touched on the port’s future, disruptors in the industry, and e-commerce.
According to the Savannah Morning News, Bob told the audience that “Savannah is a well-positioned port with a unique balance of import and export trade, which presents an incredible opportunity for retailers to take advantage of the lowest possible costs.”
“Savannah’s importance in the overall national supply chain is well-known,” he continued. “With the Panama Canal expansion and Suez Canal traffic continuing to build, we’re already seeing the biggest ships in Savannah. Granted, they aren’t full capacity, but they will be full once the Savannah Harbor Expansion is complete. Those ships are definitely going to continue to influence the flow of goods.”
