FDOT Planning Projects related to South Florida Intermodal Logistics Center Technical assistance for the Port of Palm Beach 2006Inland Port Feasibility Study –FDOT Central Office PTO Planning Funds http://www.dot.state.fl.us/seaport/pdfs/SFL_Inland_Port_Final_Report_11_07.p df Key Findings: There is significant support for development that would accompany an inland port facility; that is, distribution centers, warehouses, trucking facilities and amenities, and other light industrial uses. The state should work with local and regional partners to further investigate the viability of a regional mixed use freight hub. A detailed market analysis is needed. 14
