July 28 - Flagler Global Logistics has broken ground on the new Titusville Logistics Center, marking the start of construction of Port Canaveral's first multimodal inland port facility.

The 246,240 sq ft (22,876 sq m) facility will be completed in early 2016 in support of expanding cargo and container terminals.

"The development of Port Canaveral's inland facility at the Titusville Logistics Center will help further leverage the region's centralised location and poise North Brevard County as a major national and international cargo hub," said Chris Scott, president and ceo of Flagler Global Logistics. "The facility has been designed to offer cargo importers, exporters and distributors more storage capacity than any surrounding warehouses on a site with unparalleled connectivity via rail, air and sea."

The Titusville Logistics Centre is adjacent to the Space Coast regional airport and just minutes away from Port Canaveral. It will also benefit from a direct rail connection to the Florida East Coast Railway and easy access to the US1 and I-95 highways.
