CRANDALL, Georgia — The Appalachian Regional Port, Georgia’s second inland port, has opened in the northwest part of the state to accept goods to be shipped into and out of the state.

The $26 million port, about 100 miles northwest of Atlanta, opened on Wednesday with ceremonies including Gov. Nathan Deal, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Connected the Port of Savannah by a CSX Transportation rail line, the new port joins a similar facility in Cordele, Ga., that opened in 2011.

The 42-acre facility, adjacent to Interstate 75 and U.S. Route 411, is about 10 miles from the Tennessee state line. It can handle up to 50,000 containers per year, with plans to double that capacity.
