Southeast Southeast is an exceptional place to live and work because a little piece of everything that makes Florida great is represented across these seven counties: Miles of bright blue ocean and sandy coastal beaches; five deep-water ports; four international airports; easy multi-modal access via rails and roads; a multicultural/multilingual workforce; outstanding educational institutions; world-class health care; and fun things to see and do.


Logistics & Transportation

Companies in need of seamless logistics are finding multiple options in Florida’s Southeast. Consider these developments in St. Lucie County alone:

• Opened in fall 2021: a 245,000-sq.-ft. FedEx Ground sorting center employing 700 package handlers now and 200 more to come;

• Opening in fall 2022: an Amazon fulfillment center employing 500+ full-time workers;

• Coming in 2023: a 427,000-sq.-ft. distribution center and food service warehouse employing 389 from the West Palm Beach-based food distributor Cheney Brothers.
