We are America’s Logistics Center – one of the only centrally located East Coast regions offering all four pillars of logistics: rail, air, maritime and highway. This means the entire Southeastern market – more than 60 million consumers – is accessible within eight hours.

Three major railroads—CSX, Norfolk Southern and Florida East Coast Railway—use Jacksonville as a railroad hub/interchange. Three major interstates—I-95, I-10 and I-75—connect the area with every part of the country. And, our deep-water port has three public marine terminals.

This makes Northeast Florida’s seven-county region ideal for international trade, and logistics and supply chain management investments and employment.

"From plant managers special interest groups to wage surveys to lobbying for lower capitol equipment taxes and lower electric rates, the First Coast Manufacturers Association has been an innovative, powerful resource for manufacturers and logistic providers for over 25 years. We are here to help manufacturers locate and prosper in Northeast Florida."
