By rail, by road, by sea or sky, Palm Bay’s central location on the eastern seaboard and excellent transportation infrastructure make it an optimal point for access to markets and customers, keeping freight and delivery costs low.
Location and Accessibility
Major interstates, international airports and deep-water seaports keep commerce moving across Florida, the United States and the world. And the home base is growing, too: Currently ranked as the third most-populous state in the U.S., our population recently surpassed 20 million. The Sunshine State added more residents than every state but Texas during that time span, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The migration rate into Florida from other states and other countries was the highest in the country in 2015.
