Features of the port
The Georgia Ports Authority facilitates shipping cars to or from Port of Brunswick through both the natural and developed features the port of Brunswick offers.

It is just 51.6 miles from Jacksonville, , and just 70 miles from South/southwest Savanna, Georgia. From its shores, it has direct access to the Atlantic Ocean - no canals, no straits, no Seaways. The Atlantic waters provide deep harbors to the port, about 40 feet of grin berth depth suitable for handling heavily laden cargo vessels.
The port is rich in state-of-the-art facilities that promote efficient and bulk car shipping services.
- Vast acreage: First off, the port owns well over 5000 acres of leased and owned land dedicated to auto shipment. The port has leased out land to car manufacturing companies as exclusive shipment terminals. This facilitates shipping cars to or from port of Brunswick especially for car manufacturers and private owners that wish to ship their vehicles through affiliate companies. For instance, Nissan vehicles can by affiliation to DT-Dobie be shipped through Mercedes-owned shipping terminals at the port of Brunswick.
- Multiple Berths: The entire harbor is sectioned into dedicated berths. The container terminal berth of Port of Brunswick is the busiest single-container terminal in North America. It offers deep water berths with a consistent overall depth of 9,693 feet. This is highly advantageous for large cargo ships, given the fact that intermodal containers add extra tons to the raw cargo weight. The ships get to dock just next to the loading area, which in turn facilitates fast and convenient loading of the containerized cars by cranes.
- Ro-Ro: The Port of Brunswick prides itself in being the second - busiest U.S. Port for Ro-Ro cargo. The port has two dedicated Roll-on/Roll-off terminals; Colonel’s Island terminal & Ocean terminal, both occupying a total area of more than 1,700 acres.
