The Canaveral Port Authority is ready to welcome cargo businesses to its first inland warehouse and distribution center, according to a report in SpaceCoastDaily.com.
Construction wrapped up on the first Class A warehouse building at the Titusville Logistics Center, Port Canaveral’s first multimodal inland facility, the blog reported. The 246,736-square-foot building — the area’s first 30-foot-high bay warehouse — now is available for cargo customers and other businesses interested in logistics and distribution space near the port with freight-rail access, the report said.
The authority’s portion of the distribution center includes two buildings, the first which is now completed and a second 212,410-square-foot warehouse and distribution center on U.S. Highway 1 is still to come, according to marketing materials for the Port Canaveral Logistics Center at Titusville. The port’s new facility will support north Brevard County’s growing cargo business.
This is the first phase of the Titusville Logistics Center being developed by Coral Gables-based Flagler Global Logistics, as previously reported by Orlando Business Journal. In all, the complex is expected to have 2.9 million square feet of industrial space, including flexible warehouse and distribution options with multimodal transportation connections such as direct access to its sister-company run Florida East Coast Railway.
The new Titusville Logistics Center features freight rail and truck access just 15 minutes away from Port Canaveral and is expected to create 400-500 jobs, OBJ previously reported.
