CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A company that provides container and chassis maintenance is opening a facility at South Carolina's newest inland port.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported that Container Maintenance Corp. plans to hire 54 people at a new operation in Dillon.

The State Ports Authority inland port along Interstate 95 in Dillon opened in April and is South Carolina's second such operation. The other is in Greer.

Container Maintenance Corp. is expected to spend more than $11 million at the cargo hub, offering container and chassis maintenance as well as repair and upkeep of equipment to support of the inland port.

Container Maintenance Corp. has similar operations at the Port of Charleston and at the inland port in Greer.

The inland port allows trucks and trains to exchange cargo containers.
