Florida is one of the fastest growing states in the country and the Central Florida region, centered on the Tampa-Orlando I-4 corridor, is one of the fastest growing areas of the state. Florida's rapidly expanding population has already overtaken New York, making it the third largest state after California and Texas.
Home to nearly half of Florida's 21 million residents and welcoming a majority of the 125 million tourist visitors/year, the Tampa/Orlando region is a huge consumer market and home to the largest concentration of distribution centers in Florida.
Major industry clusters in the Tampa market include the food and beverage sector, citrus and juice products, furniture, general department store merchandise, steel, and fertilizer products.Companies such as Rooms to Go, Sysco, Publix, Bealls, Southern Wine & Spirits, Premier Beverages, Coca Cola Refreshments, Pepsico, Cutrale, Disney, VF Wear, Vigo, Amalie, Mosaic, Trademark Metals, Lowe's, Home Depot, Badcock and Kane’s Furniture are examples of some of the exporters and importers with significant facilities in the Tampa/Orlando I-4 corridor region, many of who have recently constructed and/or expanded distribution center capacity.
Cooperative efforts have brought the Port more efficient rail and highway connections supporting the expanded Panama Canal.
