Intermodal links will define US port success post-Panama Canal expansion -
Big gateway ports like New York/New Jersey, Charleston and Savannah, which are deepening their harbors and expanding terminals to handle bigger ships, will be big winners in the battle for cargo coming through the Panama Canal. But smaller ports could also see benefit from containers transshipped onto smaller ships in Colon, Panama and other Caribbean transshipment hubs like Kingston, Jamaica.

A Consensus in Washington, but No Action -

A tale of two (port) cities: Savannah and Charleston -
Separated by little more than 100 miles of coastline, the ports of Savannah and Charleston combined moved more than 4.2 million 20-foot-containers in 2011, with the potential to grow exponentially when an expanded Panama Canal opens in late 2014.
