Freight In Florida
Why Freight Matters?
Freight is the transportation of goods by truck, train, ship, plane, or spacecraft.
From agriculture to space shuttles to your morning coffee, freight impacts almost every facet of daily life. The broader wholesale trade, transportation and logistics industry is home to more than 70,000 companies, employing 630,000 Floridians.
In 2014, Florida passed New York to become the 3rd most populous state. Florida’s multimodal infrastructure now supports more than 20 million residents and over 100 million tourists annually.
From road to rail, to airports, seaports, and spaceports Florida will get your people, products and ideas to the world – fast.
