CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The South Carolina State Ports Authority is considering whether to put a refrigerated warehouse at its new inland port in Greer.

Ports Authority president and chief executive officer Jim Newsome tells The Post and Courier of Charleston that (https://bit.ly/1vDM8Y ) the inland port is close to a lot of chicken and turkey processing plants in the Carolinas.

Newsome says if the cold storage facility were built, it would be built by a private business.

The $25 million inland port opened in October of last year and provides a direct rail link between the Upstate and Ports Authority terminals on the coast.

Currently the inland port does not handle any refrigerated cargo.
