Location and infrastructure are the primary components of a premier logistics and distribution marketplace. Winter Haven's central location makes it ideal for any business that has an interest in accessing more than nine million people within an approximately 100-mile radius. Located 55 miles inland, protected from coastal storms, and with convenient access to interstates I-4, I-75, U.S. 27, and the Florida Turnpike System, Winter Haven offers a protected and connected hub for transportation, logistics, manufacturing, and technology industries.
Winter Haven boasts being the home of the Central Florida Intermodal Logistics Center (ILC), the most advanced intermodal rail terminal in the world. With nearly silent, fully electric shipping container cranes, the ILC can provide shippers with a 40% savings over trucking, as well as the ability to increase efficiency by combining bulk warehouse, distribution, and manufacturing in a single location.
