USA – new logistics center for Port Canaveral

A ground-breaking ceremony was held at Titusville, Florida, on 27 July as construction of the Port Canaveral Logistics Center gets under way. It will be the port’s first offsite warehouse and a major step towards its ambition to create a world-class logistics hub in Central Florida.

The center is being funded and developed by Flagler Logistics, a Florida-based logistics, supply chain solutions and real estate developer. Under the terms of the development the port authority will lease the center, with a further option to buy, and then sub-lease units to the port’s customers. It is predicted that a strong logistics industry in the region would create up to 15,000 jobs over the next decade, so this development has been met with great interest.

The Port Canaveral Logistics Center will feature 246,240 sq ft of dividable space with 30 ft clearance, truck bays and railside loading doors, with a new spur being built from the nearby Florida East Coast rail line. It is scheduled for completion by May 2016.
