New grain transload facility in Charleston
The Scoular Co. has established a grain-handling facility in Charleston that can export more than 25 million pounds of product annually.
The new operation will be located at Wando Welch Terminal and allow grain from farms across the region to be loaded into ocean shipping containers.
'Moving products grown in South Carolina efficiently from field to ship to market is a huge competitive advantage,' said Hugh Weathers, commissioner of the S.C. Department of Agriculture. 'Our ports are vital to the state's agricultural industries, and opening new markets to our products is great for the economy.'
