Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

Stature Investments, a regional investment and development company, is pleased to announce the company’s new Port Fuel Center in Port Wentworth, Ga., at the corner of Hwy. 21 and Grange Rd.
Specifically developed to support the commercial truck drivers and employees of Georgia Ports Authority, the new 16-acre fuel and maintenance complex will include the following features:

Diesel and gasoline fueling centers

10,000 sq. ft. convenience store with drive-through service

Variety of food offerings (restaurant partnerships TBD)

72 (18-wheeler) truck parking spaces

Tire maintenance and repair shop

10 diesel fueling lanes located in the front and back of complex

Compressed Natural Gas

Open 24-hours a day
“We are so proud of this incredible project,” said President and COO of Stature Investments Yash Desai. “This new Port Fuel Center is the first of its kind in the area and has been designed to give the hard working people who support and work for the Georgia Ports Authority a place to recharge and service their trucks before getting back on the road. Typically, truck stops are not quite this large, so we’re very excited to bring a new level of offerings and service to the industry.”
Port Fuel Center is also intending on providing compressed natural gas, and possibly liquified natural gas, to support the new truck and heavy duty equipment technologies designed to significantly lower emissions and noise that is associated with diesel fueled engines. Anticipating the movement to greater sustainability in trucking and port operations, the Port Fuel Center has a strategic partner that can support the CNG usage for the CNG fueling station, and can also provide mobile fueling solutions within and surrounding the Port operations. In order to effectively size the CNG and LNG equipment, Port Fuel Center encourages fleets to contact them with their interest and potential fueling requirements.
Stature Investments will break ground on the new Port Fueling Center 1Q-2019 and expects to have construction complete by 4Q-2019.
