The Georgia Ports Authority has updated its search engine for manufacturing and logistics sites to make it more comprehensive and easier to access.
The GPA’s web-based Commercial Corridors Tool now works on all platforms, including mobile devices.
Users may now search for available land or buildings by any of several criteria, such as:
- Property type
- Real estate listing
- For lease or sale
- Interstate or highway corridor
- Distance to port or rail facilities
- Tax credit tier
Another new feature is the ability to toggle between aerial photos and maps showing buildings and land.
“Those who are considering Georgia locations can also now bookmark for later review sites on four main corridors: I-95, I-16, Savannah River Parkway or Highway 341,” said Cliff Pyron, chief commercial officer at the GPA. “By working with partners such as Georgia Power to share data, the listings are now more extensive and updated more frequently.”
Georgia’s deepwater ports and inland barge terminals support more than 352,000 jobs throughout the state annually and contribute $18.5 billion in income, $66.9 billion in revenue and $2.5 billion in state and local taxes to Georgia’s economy. The Port of Savannah handled 8 percent of the U.S. containerized cargo volume and 10.9 percent of all U.S. containerized exports in FY2013.
