About Jacksonville

Jacksonville is the largest city in the state of Florida and the largest city by area in the contiguous United States. It covers over 840 square miles, which is larger than the size of New York City, Miami, and Chicago combined. This vast area makes Jacksonville an important hub for freight transportation, as it is strategically located on the St. Johns River and has access to major highways, railways, and an international airport.

The city's port, the Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT), is one of the busiest ports in the United States. It handles a wide range of cargo, including automobiles, containerized cargo, bulk commodities, and breakbulk cargo. JAXPORT is a crucial link in the supply chain, connecting businesses in Jacksonville to global markets. The port's strategic location and excellent transportation infrastructure make it a preferred choice for many importers and exporters.

Jacksonville has a rich history in transportation. It was a major hub for the railroad industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with multiple rail lines converging in the city. Today, the city is still served by several railroads, including CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern. The railway network in Jacksonville plays a vital role in transporting goods across the country, connecting businesses to markets in the Midwest and beyond.
