Any location in South Carolina is within an hour and some change of a commercial airport. We can offer your production one of five primary airports located in Columbia, Charleston, Florence, Greenville-Spartanburg and Myrtle Beach.

Highway System

South Carolina is crisscrossed by five interstate highways: I-85, I-26, I-77, I-95 and I-20. Offering excellent east-west and north-south access, these interstates are enhanced by another 41,000 miles of state-maintained highways, the fifth largest amount in the nation.
