Stephen Smith, SIOR and I had the opportunity to tour the Port of Jacksonville today during the SIOR Fall Conference. JAXPORT is located in the southeastern United States at the crossroads of the nation's highway and rail transportation network. This makes it ideal for Florida logisitcs and for Florida warehouse space and Florida distribution. JAXPORT consists of three cargo terminals that comprise over 1,100 acres all within Foreign Trade Zone #64. In 2007, JAXPORT had over 8.3M tons (or over 710,000 TEU's). Top import countries are from Canada, Virgin Islands, Colombia, Bahamas and Venezuela. Top export countries are Puerto Rico, Brazil, Russia, Venezuela and Saudia Arabia. I thought it was interesting that the day we were there an entire cargo ship was being loaded with frozen chicken headed to Russia.

The SIOR annual convention will be held next month in Minneapolis, MN.
