South Carolina’s new inland port, located near Greer, is now open and fully operational, according to officials there.

They say staff and engineers are onsite and testing the $25 million facility Monday.  

The site will provide a direct rail link to the state’s ports on the coast.

Terminal Manager Michael Hoffman and his staff spent the day performing data testing and preparing for the first cargo shipment to arrive next week.

"We've all been down in Charleston training for the last four months getting ready for this. So everyone is excited," said Hoffman.

The South Carolina Ports Authority is predicting more jobs for the Upstate because the inland port is so attractive to businesses.

"It also provides for us to recruit new businesses to the community," said Reno Deaton with Greer Development Corporation. "I think in the days to come we'll see great projects come as a result of this asset.

Greer Development says job projections are promising. So far BMW has already announced 100-plus jobs for its new facility at the inland port.
