Seamless Global Connections
International commerce has been a key driver of the Charleston economy since 1670. With one of the world's most productive, deepwater seaports, quick access to international air hubs at JFK, Atlanta, and Dulles, dual rail service, multiple interstates, and highly reliable communications infrastructure, Charleston provides companies a seamless connection to world markets.
For companies looking to export and import, Charleston’s central East Coast location and access to one of the fastest-growing markets in the U.S.—the Southeast—are strategic advantages. The Port of Charleston offers the deepest harbor in the south Atlantic and provides global access to 150+ countries.
