The study examined many different trade opportunities for Florida, and identified three broad opportunities for the state, as shown here.Capture larger share of Asian imports to Florida through Florida seaportsExpand Florida origin exports Expand Florida’s role as a global trade hub serving other states and nationsOur report next week will describe each opportunity in detail, and identify the economic impacts if we are successful in each area.
The report identifies direct trade opportunities which could create up to 32,000 jobs in transportation, warehousing and related logistics activities – includes jobs involved in moving freight (airports, seaports, rail, trucking), storing freight, and serving those industries (e.g., customs brokers)Even more important – what can we add to our economy because we are moving more trade – for example, if we double exports of Florida goods, and double the amount of “discretionary cargo” destined for other states but handled through Florida - -and make sure we add value to each shipment of freight passing through the state. If we seize this broader opportunity, we are looking at up to 111,000 jobs in sectors like advanced manufacturing, final assembly, supply chain management, related services.Additional impacts$21.5 billion in business sales, $ 7.9 billion in personal income, $723 million in state and local tax revenues.
Achieving this vision will require critical near term action in the following areas:Support the leadership of the Governor as Florida’s economic development officer and trade ambassador to market Florida as a trade and logistics hub and to attract business investment to the state.Expedite plans to create at least one seaport with 50 feet of channel depth and with an on dock or near dock rail connection by 2014, the scheduled completion of the Panama Canal expansion. This seaport would be able to serve as a first port of call for the largest container ships using the Panama Canal. The investment should be coordinated with a focused trade mission to help Florida pursue first call services from Asian container lines, as well as strategic investments in international distribution centers.Identify global trade and logistics as a statewide targeted industry and a focus area for Enterprise Florida, Workforce Florida, the Florida Department of Transportation, and other state agencies. The state must strengthen existing marketing, incentives, and support services to meet the needs of this cluster.Continue efforts to double the value of Florida origin exports over the next five years by pursuing opportunities to place Florida goods in the many containers and other vehicles which currently enter Florida full and leave empty.
Identify investments needed to maintain and expand Miami International Airport’s role as a global hub, as well as the potential benefits of creating a second tier air cargo hub elsewhere in Florida.Advance planning for an integrated statewide network of trade gateways, logistics centers, and transportation corridors through Florida’s Strategic Intermodal System. Provide sufficient and reliable funding for future state investments in Florida’s trade, transportation, and economic development systems.
