On March 9, 1945 the Georgia Legislature, anticipating the post-World War II economic boom, created the Georgia Ports Authority, with control over the deepwater ports in both Savannah and Brunswick. Today, the Port of Savannah is the fastest-growing and single largest container terminal in the country, accounting for nearly 10% of Georgia’s economy.
