One of Georgia’s largest job creators has had some good news.
A rebound in the auto industry propelled the Port of Brunswick to another record year.
The port has surpassed New York as the nation’s top auto importer.
The Georgia Ports Authority says it handled about 12% more auto and machinery units in the last fiscal year.
The vast majority are cars and trucks passing through the Colonel’s Island ocean terminal in Brunswick.
Richard Kilbride of International Auto Processing says his company last year put the final touches on more than 400,000 cars and trucks before they were delivered.
