Fastest Growing Florida Region

Home to more than 8 million residents and over 60 million visitors annually, all of central Florida is the state's fastest growing region, and is expected to outpace the growth of south Florida by more than 2 to 1 for the next several years (U.S. Census).  The region is anchored by the I-4 corridor from Tampa to/from Orlando which in recent years has become one of the largest concentration of distribution centers in the Southeast, rivaling Atlanta.

Port Tampa Bay continues to successfully penetrate the central Florida market through the provision of superior supply chain efficiencies to regional importers and exporters.  

The port's efforts to attract services include telling our story of better efficiencies through proximity to this explosive growth and by thereby providing superior inland transit times for container shipping lines.
