“In a short amount of time, we have seen tremendous success from ARP. Running on the best-in-class TOS solution has propelled our operations forward, which has helped us achieve records, service customers and incorporate innovative technology at our terminal. When we were selecting a partner for our new rail venture, we trusted in our decades old Navis partnership to provide the solution to help our business excel and expand into rail. As GPA further its rail efforts, including a major on-dock, mega rail project at Port of Savannah, we look forward to working with Navis and having their cutting edge TOS support our business for years to come.”

- Wesley Barrell, ARP Terminal Manager

OVERVIEW:

GPA’s Appalachian Regional Port (ARP) is a joint effort of the state of Georgia, Murray County, the Georgia Ports Authority, and CSX Transportation. ARP opened in 2018 as GPA’s first inland intermodal terminal after it went from a greenfield site to an operational facility in 2 years. Sitting on 42 acres, ARP serves four key regions in the US: Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky - and has the capacity to handle 50,000 containers per year.

CHALLENGES:

From  inception, GPA had several  goals in mind for ARP: open an intermodal terminal to expand its rail business, offer innovative technology solutions to create a modern facility, grow the local economy by building a thriving transportation hub, and drive sustainability by cutting the amount of trucks on the road through replacing them with rail options.
