Many businesses consider the southeast Georgia region a prime location due to the tremendous transportation assets in the region. Transportation assets include rail, interstate, and access to the skies.
Interstate 95 runs North and South directly through Southeast Georgia and is one huge advantage of the Region. Interstate 16 and Interstate 10 are both a short drive North and South. Together with quick access to two container ports and the nation’s busiest ro/ro port (the Port of Brunswick) – tractor trailers are able to move goods to 80% of United State’s population in a one day drive.

Southeast Georgia is served by several short-line railroads and two Class I rail providers – Norfolk Southern and CSX.
The Southeast Georgia Alliance was originally formed in 2004 when six counties came together to finance a connector that would greatly enhance the rail lines that serve the Port of Brunswick. The connector track, appropriately named the “Phil Overton Junction, generates funds for the Alliance and has greatly contributed to the Port of Brunswick’s rapid growth in the automobile sector.
Norfolk Southern has several lines that run through the area and can serve multiple sites in Brantley and Glynn County.
CSX can serve multiple sites in Camden, Charlton, Wayne, Brantley and Glynn County.
