Learn about the Port of Savannah’s Expanding Capacity during June 2 Webinar

May 19, 2022 | As cargo shipments continue to be diverted from congested West Coast ports, businesses are looking to other ports for opportunity—such as the Port of Savannah, Georgia, which now handles nearly one out of every nine loaded containers crossing the nation’s docks.

The Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) recently reported that it will expand berth and container yard capacity at the port to accommodate its growing business after experiencing another record-breaking month of 495,782 20-foot container units handled in April. The Toy Association is reminding members to attend a June 2 webinar for an in-depth look at the Port of Savannah.

Taking place from 2 to 2:45 p.m. (Eastern), “Port Update: A Report on the Port of Savannah” will connect member companies with Cliff Pyron, CCO of the Port of Savannah, who will share key insights to aid decision-making into the 2022 holiday season. Members will also have the opportunity to ask questions following the presentation.

Registration is now open exclusively to Toy Association members. This webinar is specifically recommended for those who work in the logistics, transportation, and/or supply chain areas of their companies. Additional sessions with leaders from ports in Texas and Virginia will follow in the coming months.

Questions about this webinar and other Toy Association educational offerings may be directed to Anne McConnell, senior director of market research & data strategy.
