With unparalleled access to markets worldwide, the state’s 15 deep-water seaports and 19 commercial airports bring the world to Florida and take your products to every corner of the globe.
Strong Services Exports
Ranked 4th in the U.S. Florida has a natural advantage in exporting knowledge-intensive services, with its extensive global ties, linguistically diverse population, and service-intensive economy. High value-added services such as accounting, communications, consulting, engineering, financial, legal, medical and many others are in great demand.
Robust Trade Infrastructure
Florida’s vast international commerce infrastructure includes the ready availability of trade financing, international legal and insurance services, freight forwarding and logistics, distribution and warehousing and related services. The state’s international business community enjoys access to the second largest Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) network in the country, where value can be added to foreign goods tariff-free before shipping them on to another country.
Enterprise Florida’s six trade offices around the state assist Florida businesses with developing new international markets and exporting their products and services around the globe. Free export counseling is available for Florida manufacturers, export intermediaries and services providers.
