FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHARLESTON, SC – June 20, 2016 – The South Carolina Ports Authority began full implementation of its Advanced Gate System on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at the Wando Welch Terminal. Although we have had internal and external training in effect since June 6th, it always takes time to get everybody acquainted with the new processes when a major system is being installed. Today is the first day at full capacity so we are experiencing delays in truck processing but we are working through the issues as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience during this time.
Our new Advanced Gate System is designed to deliver faster truck turn times, more robust and more transparent information flow, improved mission flexibility, and enhanced management tools and reports.
