The Biggest Ship to Visit Charleston Harbor

Follow the COSCO Development as she sails from Asia through the Panama Canal and along the East Coast before arriving at the Port of Charleston in May. Thanks to a wide and deep harbor, big-ship cranes and efficient operations, SCPA will be the last port of call for the biggest ship ever to visit the East Coast – and in this case, it’s good to be last!

Charleston’s harbor depth and width allow a large vessel like the COSCO Development to be loaded with heavy export cargo before it begins its journey back to Asia.
