The power of infrastructure: How Charleston, SC is expanding horizons for life science companies

Life science businesses like Horizon Scientific depend on Charleston’s intermodal transportation infrastructure to deliver products to the marketplace by road, sea, air and rail. Continued investments in the metro area ensure they won’t be let down.

First-rate infrastructure is one of the hallmarks of a thriving economy, with transportation something all businesses depend on. A well-functioning system of roads, railroads, seaports and airports facilitate the production and exchange of goods – the basic principle at the heart of most life science business models.

One metro area of the US that has got it all is Charleston | South Carolina. Within the three counties (Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester) that comprise Charleston, a highly efficient network of transportation infrastructure offers the global marketplace access to local businesses. The region’s central position between New York and Florida provides prime East Coast connections while also facilitating efficient transatlantic travel and transportation – including a nonstop British Airways flight to London Heathrow from Charleston International Airport.
