“Florida’s policymakers and business community have long recognized and supported the state’s unique position as a global hub. While investments have been made at the state and local level in multimodal freight systems, has the Federal government provided the necessary partnership to support Florida as a premier trade gateway? What are the short-term and long-term prospects for such partnership?, ” said Elaine Nessle , Executive Director, Coalition for America’s Gateways & Trade Corridors

As we look at the challenges and opportunities a growing population brings, one of the Florida 2030 research report’s recommendations is to ensure Florida’s trade and visitor gateways are linked to inland corridors to enable efficient global supply chains and delivery networks. Can Florida continue partnerships that allow it to remain a global hub in 2030 and beyond?
