Located in the Southeastern U.S., JAXPORT is at the crossroads of the nation’s rail and highway network. With more than 100 trucking firms and 40 daily train departures via two Class I railroads – CSX and Norfolk Southern – as well as the Florida East Coast Railway, the region’s highly skilled labor force provides safe and efficient vehicle handling for auto manufacturers and distributors.
