JAXPORT, a 1,500-acre, full-service, diversified international trade seaport with ocean carrier service across all major trade lanes, is only 75 miles from Hawthorne Industry Park. The Park benefits from being in Foreign Trade Zone #64 with JAXPORT, allowing companies that import, store or export dutiable foreign merchandise in and from the FTZ to exempt the standard tariffs. These are the same benefits as companies located in a portside FTZ. In addition, JAXPORT owns and maintains the Blount Island Marine Terminal, Dames Point Marine Terminal and Talleyrand Marine Terminal along the St. Johns River, as well as the JAXPORT Cruise Terminal. Farther to the south, Port Tampa Bay is well-known for its easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, shipbuilding industry and handling of bulk and break-bulk ocean cargoes. The port offers access via ship, rail and truck.
Florida boasts 14 deep-water ports, giving Hawthorne Industry Park another reason that it is the perfect location.
