Ro/Ro The Big Boats
The Golden Ray ship is still turned over in the St. Simons Sound. You can view this “tourist attraction” from our street and get great photos when outgoing ships blow their horns and pass the Golden Ray and the fishing pier. The VB 10,000 is scheduled to cut up and remove the ship this summer. (www.ssiresponse.com)
Brunswick is the nation’s second busiest port for import and export Ro/Ro cargo (i.e. Roll On/Roll Off). As a dedicated RoRo facility without container competition, the Colonel’s Island Terminal in Brunswick features three on-terminal auto processors, including International Auto Processing, Mercedes-Benz USA, and Wallenius Wilhelmsen Solutions. The Port of Brunswick offers three modern Ro/Ro berths, served by nine steamship lines. Current annual capacity is more than 900,000 vehicles.
