        South Florida International Logistics Center
The REASONS to LOCATE at an integrated logisitics campus of
                      the Americas:

 1. The Market Opportunity
 2. Distribution Center Strategy (Savings)
 3. Drayage Cost/Service Advantage
 4. Excellent Rail Service
 5. Opportunity to Capture Additional Freight Flows by
    Aggregation Efficiencies
 6. Plentiful and Affordable Land

                 1. The Market Opportunity
• Southern Florida (defined as area SOUTH of a line drawn from
  Sarasota on the Gulf Coast east to Fort Pierce on the Atlantic Coast)
  – consumer market size includes both permanent residents and
  seasonal (tourist influx) and anticipated growth.

• Latin America – emerging and fast-growing middle class markets,
  increased buying power and demand for U.S. consumer products
  (Brazil, Chile, Argentina) – potential markets if the politics change
  (Cuba, Columbia, and Venezuela)

• Asia – widening of Panama canal in 2014 and Port of Miami 50’
  depth will open FL to large Asian container ships – opportunity to
  play a role in the import, export and distribution of containers and
  commodities that historically have been predominantly a west
  coast port play.
         South Florida International Logistics Center
   2. Distribution Center Strategy (Savings)
• Can capture consumer markets in southern Florida,
  Latin America, and Asia from one location and one
  combined facility. One instead of three.

• Consolidation of supply chain resources (mixing
  centers, warehouses, manufacturing, refrigeration
  facilities, fumigation facilities, cross docks, trans-load
  facilities, customs, and associated costs)

• Targeted and “right fit” companies and product types

• Lowering the total cost of freight for shippers to and
  from FL                                                      9

        3. Drayage Cost/Service Advantage
• Multi-modal and multiple service provider options =
  more competitive shipping rates
• Ability to reach 3 seaports (Miami, Everglades, Palm
  Beach) within 2 hr dray
• Access to Miami Int’l Airport, one of the largest cargo
  airports in the U.S. and, at 74% market share, the main
  gateway for airborne perishable imports into the United
• Lower distance and cost to access large populations will
  provide ability to negotiate lower long-haul inbound
  truck rates
• Flexibility and time to market advantage                   10

           4. Excellent Rail Service

• Two Class One railroads
  o CSX - service down the middle of the state
  o FEC from Atlanta and Jacksonville

• Excellent Short Line operator South Central Florida
  Express connecting both CSX and FEC

        South Florida International Logistics Center

5. Opportunity to Capture Additional Freight Flows by
              Aggregation Efficiencies

   • Ship to ports from the SFILC (export ships)

   • Return imported (full) containers to SFILC from
     the ports for value-added services, aggregation
     with other products/containers and transport to
     final destination
            South Florida International Logistics Center

                 6. Plentiful and Affordable Land

•    4000 - 8000 acres available for the SFILC supply chain logistic facilities

•    Plenty of area to stage, sort and store product, equipment or bulk product

•    Ability to cluster warehousing, distribution, manufacturing and
     transportation facilities in one location

•    Empty container storage and handling (arbitrage and/or broker)

•    Away from congestion of coastal areas and high cost land

•    Additional plentiful and affordable land within 45 minutes of the SFILC in
     Glades, Hendry, Okeechobee, western Palm Beach, northern Collier, and
     eastern Lee counties.

    Plentiful and Affordable Land is the platform to provide a business
        solution to an old Florida problem the “filling of the empties”
