First, if a cargo ship actually reached Atlanta, I'm as impressed as I can possibly be -- I had no idea there was a river navigable by ocean-going ships that reached anywhere near Atlanta! Second, if the cargo ship is docked in Atlanta, I think we can all understand why it will take the Longshoremen a while to "get to it;" first, they have to actually get to it! :-)

The container goes to Savannah. Our primary warehouse is in the Atlanta area.

The Chattahoochee River [not making that up] is navigable from Columbus to it's mouth on the Gulf of Mexico, but it would be probably a multi-billion dollar infrastructure project to make it navigable up to Atlanta.

Yep, if you look at a Google satellite view of downtown Columbus, GA, you can see the precise spot where that river stops being navigable.

Back in the olden days, some steamboats could navigate in water as little as three inches deep. The Tug Fork between Kentucky and West Virginia even had steamboat service.
