Flagler Global Logistics has officially opened the doors to its South Florida Logistics Center. Located adjacent to the Miami International Airport, the 200-acre intermodal logistics complex offers world-class cargo handling including unprecedented multimodal transportation access, Foreign Trade Zone advantages, and refrigerated cargo options.
Previously known as South Florida Logistics Services, Flagler Global Logistics provides integrated supply chain management and real estate services.
The Logistic Center’s first building, a 170,000-square-foot facility, is now fully operational including 30,000 square feet of refrigerated space to complement warehouse and office space. The center’s expansion plans call for the development of up to two million square feet of industrial space at the site.
An additional feature of the center is a new method of preserving the cold chain for produce and other perishable items, decreasing the amount of time the products are in transport, and extending the shelf life.
“Our Logistic Center’s enhanced transportation infrastructure provides nationwide rail access and exclusive connectivity to PortMiami and Port Everglades. Coupled with our innovative cold chain treatment technology and facility, we are well-positioned to drive a major shift in the supply chain to redirect the flow of goods—particularly perishables—from the Southeast to the Northeast,” said Chris Scott, president and chief executive officer of Flagler.
Both of Flagler’s South Florida developments, South Florida Logistics Center and Flagler Station business park, are among a handful of designated “magnet” sites with the newly formed Miami-Dade County Foreign Trade Zone #281.
With nearly two million square feet of Class A warehouse and distribution space at full buildout, the South Florida Logistics Center offers flexible space options with existing space from 12,000 to 275,000 square feet and build-to-suit space. With rail connectivity to PortMiami, Port Everglades, and Florida East Coast Railway’s intermodal yard, the center reduces transit times and transportation costs for importers and exporters looking to reach end-users throughout Florida, the Southeast, Latin America and the Caribbean.
