FECR Adds Next-Day Service To Central Florida
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.”
