The report also explores how Florida’s combination of ports, rail lines and highway systems play an integral part in supply chains that service customers. We follow a by the numbers approach in the report that highlights and showcases drivers specific to each of Florida’s major markets.

Central Florida, including Orlando and Port Canaveral, is one of the fastest growing metros in the country in terms of population growth. Central Florida serves as a unique quadra-modal transportation hub, linking sea, land, air and space. While Port Canaveral derives much of its revenue from cruise line business, the port benefits from a growing cargo diversity. Long considered solely a tourist market, the region is now a regional hotbed for logistics companies looking to tap into a diverse workforce, increasing consumer demand and competitive costs. Orlando’s centralized location along the I-4 Corridor gives logistics companies ideal access to most of Florida.
