Freight Logistics and Passenger Operations
In recognition of the significant role that
freight mobility plays as an economic driver for the state, the
Office of Freight, Logistics and Passenger Operations was created in
December, 2011. Working collaboratively on multimodal initiatives,
the office includes the
Aviation and Spaceports Office, the
Rail and Motor Carrier
Operations Office, the
Seaports and Waterways Office, and
Transit Office .
These offices continue to work with federal and local government partners in planning, coordination, financing, grant management, ridership, and regional analysis. These offices also serve as a tool to better connect, develop, and implement a planning process in order to maximize the use of the existing facilities and to integrate and coordinate the various modes of transportation, including the combined utilization of both government-owned and privately-owned resources.
The office works in conjunction with the other offices and organizations in the areas of operations, corridor planning, statistics, and further development of the Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) and other planning efforts.
Office Mission Statement
The Freight, Logistics and Passenger Operations Offices will develop motor carrier, rail, transit, seaport, waterways, aviation and spaceport opportunities through program and project management in order to support the Florida Department of Transportation comprehensive multimodal transportation system.
