New Alliance Between Florida Inland Port and Port of Miami Expected to Boost FL's Distribution Industry, Create Jobs State-wide
Under the terms of their recently signed Letter of Intent, the two parties agreed to collaborate on a number of projects (e.g., sharing data and technological capabilities, coordinating joint marketing and public relations activities).
Preston Perrone of the Florida Inland Port said this new strategic collaboration not only fits into his port's development strategy, but also solidifies its relationship with the Port of Miami and the other container seaports in Florida. "Our objective is to improve the efficiency in the Florida shipping system, and working with the state's major seaports we can help Florida truly emerge as a national center for distribution and logistics."
"The Florida Inland Port has the potential to create thousands of direct and indirect jobs in Florida as shippers realize they can get their goods to market more quickly and less costly than current alternatives offer," said John Carver, head of the Ports Airports and Global Infrastructure team at Jones Lang LaSalle (the real estate/development advisor for Florida Inland Port).
