Buildings & labor
SC Ports have what most port markets don’t right now … millions of square feet of Class A buildings available now with a robust labor force well-suited to jobs in a modern distribution center.
Leading industrial developers are investing heavily in spec buildings near SC Port facilities for all the right reasons. That means we have a wide variety of buildings from 100,000sf single-loaders to 500,000sf cross-dock that are ready for occupancy right now and more coming.
The labor you need
South Carolina, including our near port markets, have a low-unionization rate (2.7%), a strong work ethic, a combination of urban and rural workforces that can offer counter cyclical availability, and affordable wages for material handlers.
