Intermodal logistics center

An intermodal logistics center (ILC) is a location separate from an airport or seaport that provides for the transfer of freight between vehicles or vessels and also provides value-added logistics services such as consolidation, warehousing, assembly, customization, finishing, packaging, cold storage, and fumigation. These can become inland focal point for logistics and manufacturing activity. The South Florida Logistics Center under development by Florida East Coast Industries in Hialeah Yard recently received a $2.5 million grant as part of the state’s ILC Infrastructure Support Program and expects to create over 1,000 jobs. Other ILCs are being planned in Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties.
