New Multi-Purpose Carrier Service for Port of Charleston

[ January 29, 2016   //   ]

South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) recently added a new regular shipping service, Atlantic Ro-Ro Carriers (ARRC), to its vessel calls at the Port of Charleston’s Columbus Street Terminal. The first ARRC vessel arrived on January 8, handling approximately 6,000 tons of import cargo.

ARRC specializes in handling freight for multiple business segments, including container, breakbulk, rolling stock and project cargo. Charleston is an addition to ARRC’s Balt-Atlantic service, which utilizes multiple vessels to connect St. Petersburg, Russia and other North Europe ports with the U.S. East Coast.

“ARRC’s multi-purpose capabilities are an exciting addition to SCPA’s breakbulk opportunities that further enhance our connection with North Europe,” said Paul McClintock, SCPA Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We’re pleased to welcome their regular calls.”
