Freight Rail Keeps Florida On Track

From Florida’s Tropicana “Juice Train” to its powerful ports, freight rail connections are essential to moving the Sunshine state’s economy. CSX is headquartered in Jacksonville and Norfolk Southern and several short line and regional railroads make it possible for Florida industries to reach markets around the world.

Florida's 16 freight railroads operate over 2,782 miles of track and employ 4,014 in the Sunshine State.* It would have taken approximately 4.3 million additional truckloads to move the 78 million tons of freight that moved by rail in Florida in 2019. Moving freight by rail prevented 4.35 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions, the equivalent of taking 853,000 cars off the road or planting 65.9 million trees. Intermodal shipments and nonmetallic minerals comprise the majority of freight rail shipments beginning and ending in Florida.
