Florida East Coast Railway ('FECR') is a 351-mile freight rail system located along the east coast of Florida, owing its roots to Henry M. Flagler… a name synonymous with growth and development for the State of Florida. Based in Jacksonville, FECR is the exclusive rail provider to South Florida’s ports and with connections to CSX and Norfolk Southern in Jacksonville; FECR is able to serve 70% of the United States in 1-4 days providing end-to-end solutions to customers that demand more cost-effective options without compromising service quality.
FECR is well positioned to create an efficient and timely supply chain model featuring unparalleled offerings such as:
- PortMiami on-dock rail service, providing an efficient connection to the national rail network and positioning FECR and PortMiami as the key to Latin America/Caribbean/Asian market growth opportunities expected as a result of the Panama Canal expansion.
- On 14th July 2014, FECR initiated near-dock rail access to Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale) via a new Intermodal Container Transfer Facility ('ICTF').
- FECR's transload network is comprised of more than 10 facilities at strategic points along FECR's mainline corridor from Jacksonville to Miami with major interstate and turnpike access.
- FECR moves major carload commodities including aggregates, automobiles, lumber, farm products, food and kindred products, machinery, pulp and paper, ethanol, bulk chemicals, stone, clay and glass.
