Logistics & Distribution

Expedited Career Potential

The logistics and distribution industry in Northwest Florida isn’t only known for getting products where they need to be, but people’s careers, too. The 15-county region offers strong career prospects at more than 500 distribution companies, while trucking associations and certification programs at local colleges bolster employee job confidence and knowledge.

Low congestion roads and nation-spanning I-10 highway provide seamless access for drivers, whether it’s a local or cross-continental trip. The bay area is also alive with activity from three deep water ports, two of which are designated foreign trade zones.
