Strategically located at the southeastern corner of the United States, Jacksonville offers the best intermodal connections in the South Atlantic.

By Truck

  • More than 70 million consumers are located within a one-day truck drive of all three JAXPORT marine terminals, each of which is minutes from an Interstate highway.
  • More than 100 trucking and drayage firms operate in and around Jacksonville's port to take advantage of the city’s highway system, anchored by I-95, I-10 and I-75.
  • Truck turn times at JAXPORT terminals averaging 23 minutes for two moves. Shipping cargo through Jacksonville is extraordinarily efficient.

By Rail

  • Jacksonville offers 40 daily train departures via two Class I railroads – CSX and Norfolk Southern – and one regional railroad, Florida East Coast Railway.
  • CSX provides port customers access to its 22,000-mile network that reaches 23 states and Canada and provides on-dock rail at the Blount Island Marine Terminal.
  • Norfolk Southern operates approximately 21,000 route miles in 22 states and the District of Columbia, connecting port customers throughout their rail network.
  • Florida East Coast Railway offers multiple daily departures servicing locations from Jacksonville to South Florida.
  • Talleyrand Terminal Railroad, Inc. provides direct switching for Norfolk Southern and CSX at the Talleyrand Marine Terminal. The Florida East Coast Railway intermodal ramp is only minutes away from the terminal.
  • JAXPORT’s ICTF at Dames Point serves JAXPORT’s Northside terminals: The TraPac Container Terminal at Dames Point and the Blount Island Marine Terminal. Rail that connects to CSX’s main line allows for two unit trains each day (one inbound and one outbound) carrying up to 200 containers each.
