Union Pier Terminal is one of Charleston’s dedicated breakbulk handling facilities. UPT is ideal for handling traditional noncontainer freight such as forest products, metals, equipment, and project cargo. Buildings 318 and 322 were designed to handle paper being moved between ships and rail cars. Ample open storage is available for a wide variety of cargo. A redevelopment plan would replace a portion of the cargo handling facilities for a new cruise terminal in the near future.
