Georgia Ports Authority to Build Inland Port in Gainesville, Auto Supplier to Build 318,000 SF Distribution Center Nearby

GAINESVILLE, GA. — Georgia Ports Authority will develop a new 104-acre inland port in Gainesville. Currently, containers moving by truck travel 600 miles roundtrip to and from the Port of Savannah. When the new rail yard opens, drivers will be able to make shorter trips from area manufacturers and distribution facilities to the northeast Georgia site. The port is slated to be complete in 2021. Gainesville is located along Interstate 985, about 55 miles northeast of Atlanta. In conjunction with the port announcement, Auto Metal Direct, a distributor of auto body panels and trim for classic cars and trucks, announced it will open a 318,000 square-foot distribution and fulfillment center near the port. Construction will begin soon, and upon completion, the $15 million development will bring 40 jobs to Hall County.
