More business coming to the Port of Charleston

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - One of the largest container shipping lines in the world is adding another service in the Port of Charleston.

Hamburg Sud is bringing its Australia line from the Port of Savannah to Charleston.  The company already has three shipping services in the Port of Charleston.

The new service line will be weekly, meaning more work hours for waterfront workers and business at the port.

Officials say the move will fill a gap in the port's service.  Shippers in South Carolina will have the opportunity to export to the Australian market as well as receive goods. 

The first ship call is in September.
