JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – June 4, 2015 — Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) announced today that it is expanding its intermodal rail service into Central Florida to include next-day service to Fort Pierce on weekends. Previously, FECR provided next-day service to Fort Pierce six days each week.
Beginning June 6, shipments that arrive at the FECR rail facility in Jacksonville before 10:00 a.m. on Saturdays will be available in Fort Pierce at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays.
