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.

Orlando’s centralized location along the I-4 Corridor gives logistics companies ideal access to most of Florida.
