By The Associated Press

SAVANNAH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 16, 2021--

Savannah Gateway Industrial Hub (SGIH), a 2,600 acre master planned multi-modal industrial park development partnership between OmniTRAX – The Broe Group’s transportation affiliate – and Effingham County Industrial Development Authority (ECIDA), announced dual project milestones that mark the park’s official opening. A&R Logistics’ new global export headquarters is fully operational and the park’s new OmniTRAX rail infrastructure that enables its multi-modal export capability is officially receiving shipments from Class 1 providers CSX Transportation (CSX) and Norfolk Southern Rail (NS).

“The amazing speed of this buildout delivered well ahead of plan, under these market conditions, is a testament to the shared commitment and incredible collaboration from OmniTRAX, Broe Real Estate Group, Effingham County, the Class I railroads and the Port of Savannah,” said A&R Logistics President Chris Ball. “The Port of Savannah is poised to be a key plastics export hub, and our new export operation delivers a strategic facility from which we can best serve our customers’ global needs.”

The Savannah Gateway Industrial Hub (SGIH) is a public-private partnership between Effingham County Industrial Development Authority and The Broe Group, parent company of affiliates OmniTRAX and Broe Real Estate.

Savannah Gateway unlocks unparalleled multi-modal logistics connectivity through rail, truck and ship to markets throughout the Southeast, North America and the World.

“Savannah Gateway Industrial Hub is well positioned to capture the unprecedented level of industrial demand in the region,” said Broe Real Estate Group Executive Vice President Reagan Shanley. “As supply chains evolve to meet changing consumption and manufacturing patterns, the importance of proximity, optionality and efficiency has never been greater. SGIH combines the power of dual rail optionality with the most efficient port in the nation to deliver unmatched logistics efficiency. To continue to meet this demand, multiple new large-scale projects are currently underway.”
