About Charleston

Charleston, South Carolina, is a historic city with a rich maritime history. It was founded in 1670 and quickly became one of the busiest ports in the American colonies. The city played a crucial role in the transportation of goods, especially during the colonial and antebellum periods. Charleston's strategic location at the confluence of the Ashley and Cooper Rivers made it an ideal port for shipping goods to and from the interior of the state.

During the 18th and 19th centuries, Charleston was a major hub for the transportation of commodities such as rice, indigo, and cotton. These goods were transported to the port by river and then loaded onto ships bound for destinations around the world. The city's economy was heavily dependent on the success of its maritime trade, and the port of Charleston became one of the busiest and most prosperous in the United States.

Today, Charleston's port continues to be a vital part of the city's economy. The Port of Charleston is one of the largest container ports on the East Coast, handling millions of tons of cargo each year. The port serves as a major gateway for international trade, connecting businesses in the Southeastern United States with markets around the world. The transportation of freight through the port supports thousands of jobs in the region and contributes billions of dollars to the local economy.
