The ship, Maersk Memphis, was at the Wando terminal, the Coast Guard said in a statement.
The terminal, which is used for container cargo, was evacuated to allow federal, state and local bomb detection units to conduct investigations. Authorities did not detail the nature of the threat.
When the threat was ongoing, the Coast Guard tweeted that a "safety zone has been established around the vessel" as multiple agencies investigate. Several hours later, it gave the all-clear.
