  • Florida East Coast Railway expands intermodal rail service, offering next day service into Central Florida.
  • Next-day service into Central Florida provides reliable, flexible connectivity for supply chain management.
  • Retail customers can now replenish at store locations prior to Mondays, due to next-day intermodal rail service.

Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) 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 arriving at the FECR rail facility in Jacksonville before 10 a.m. on Saturdays will be available in Fort Pierce at 11 a.m. on Sundays. The additional day of service allows retail customers to begin replenishment at store locations prior to Monday. Motor carriers can also take advantage of intermodal rail on weekends to meet appointment times cost-effectively.

“We are pleased to offer more options for customers to reach destinations in Central Florida,” says FECR Vice President and Chief Transportation Officer, Will Costantini. “FECR recognizes the time sensitivity of many of our shipments and,” Costantini continues, “we are committed to providing the reliability, flexibility and connectivity that companies need to manage their supply chains.”
