About Lakeland

Lakeland is a vibrant city located in central Florida, known for its beautiful lakes and rich history. The city was founded in the late 19th century and was originally established as a transportation hub for the booming phosphate industry. Today, Lakeland continues to play a significant role in freight transportation, serving as a major distribution center for various industries.

One of the key factors that has contributed to Lakeland's success as a transportation hub is its strategic location. The city is situated along the Interstate 4 corridor, which connects Tampa and Orlando, two major metropolitan areas in Florida. This makes Lakeland an ideal location for companies looking to distribute their products throughout the state and beyond.

Lakeland is also home to a state-of-the-art intermodal facility, known as the Central Florida Intermodal Logistics Center (ILC). This facility, operated by CSX Transportation, provides seamless connectivity between rail, truck, and air transportation. The ILC has helped attract major companies to the area, including Amazon, which operates a large fulfillment center nearby.
