This article reports that officials of Jasper County, South Carolina, are striving to build a new $450-million container terminal under a private-public partnership with SSA Marine Inc., on a 2,556-acre tract of land along the Savannah River in Georgia and South Carolina. Gladys Jones, council vice chairman, says that the Jasper County Council began eyeing the property 13 years ago as a possible location for a marine terminal. Jones says that the terminal would economically boost Jasper, one of the poorest counties in the state, as well as South Carolina and the region.
