Global Access

Be Best, Be First with the Access Edge.

What transforms a good location into a great one? In Sumter, it’s a powerful logistical network that ensures omnidirectional access and multimodal momentum.  Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Blue Ridge Mountains, Sumter positions your operation for global speed and access, offering a high-powered menu of connections to deliver products and materials where and when your schedule demands, at cost-effective rates.

Boost your speed, boost your bottom line—that’s your edge in Sumter. To begin with, four Interstate highways—I-95, I-20, I-26 and I-77—encircle our area, offering fast-moving access in every direction, from Miami to Massachusetts, from South Carolina to West Texas, and insuring a quick connection to the Port of Charleston as well as Midwest markets. Sumter’s highway network also connects your operation to South Carolina’s comprehensive rail network, which includes service by one of the nation’s Class I carriers, CSX Transportation.  

At the multi-modal Port of Charleston, the Southeast’s deepest port, Post-Panamax shipping has already begun, with the Jasper Ocean Terminal on the Savannah River scheduled to come online in the mid 2020s as the nation’s largest port, capable of shipping seven million TEUs annually.
