About The CompanyFEC provides flexible, cost-effective rail and logistics solutions to meet the demanding transportation needs of domestic and international intermodal and carload customers. Its strategic, exclusive partnerships with PortMiami, Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale), Port of Palm Beach and motor carriers let it move freight safely, efficiently and reliably within Florida and beyond.
Tracing its lineage back to 1885 and owing roots to the legendary Henry M. Flagler (who founded Palm Beach, Miami and most of the east coast of Florida, and built the fabled Key West Extension connecting the chain of islands to the mainland), the Florida East Coast Railway is the sole rail provider operating along the east coast of Florida.
The railway continues Flagler’s same level of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit today, and is considered one of the best run railroads in the U.S.
