SC Ports ops pause due to software issue

SC Ports reports port and terminal operational delays

UPDATED: At 11:00 am (local time), SC Ports noted that its operating system is up and running and vessels are being worked. The port authority is making significant progress on resuming gates, and it will notify maritime partners and motor carriers as soon as cargo pick-up and drop-offs can occur.

The South Carolina Ports Authority (SC Ports) has announced delays at its marine terminals and inland port operations, including gates.

SC Ports noted that it is working hard to reestablish systems following a vendor software problem that affected a server.

As a result, no cargo will be picked up or dropped off until the issue is fixed.
