Advanced Transportation & Logistics
Jacksonville is America’s Logistics Center and a global destination for business.
With infrastructure that includes rail, air, maritime and highway, products are shipped all over the world from our prime location in Northeast Florida.
Our two deep-water ports, three major interstates – I-95, I-10 and I-75, four railroads, and an international airport contribute to ranking Jax as one of the best cities for logistics infrastructure (Global Trade Magazine).
We are an international leader in the production and export of liquefied natural gas (LNG). JAXPORT boasts the world’s first LNG-powered container ships and North America’s first LNG bunker barge. Our strong public/private sector relationships nurture a collaborative environment that promotes growth and development.
From energy storage and solar power to renewable energy, LNG and Compressed Natural Gas, Jacksonville is a leader in the market and focuses on innovation to sustain future growth.
The region is making sizable investments to become the nation’s preeminent smart region, with plans for investment in next generation transportation and communications technologies.
The Jacksonville region also plays a critical role in the e-commerce ecosystem with leading companies like Amazon, Fanatics, Walmart, and Bacardi. Recognizing an opportunity to foster talent development, our schools have focused courses and training, certificates, and career programs in the fields of logistics and e-commerce.
