Highlighting a Jacksonville success story

April 10, 2018  
Mayor Curry joins State Senator Aaron Bean, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio and Rep. John Rutherford to learn more about Magellan Transport Logistics.

Logistics is big business in Jacksonville. And it keeps getting bigger.

Recently, I joined Senator Marco Rubio, Congressman John Rutherford, and State Senator Aaron Bean to highlight a local company that recently announced a big expansion.
Magellan Transport Logistics is planning to hire at least 100 new employees over the next five years and expand its operations into a new 47,000 square foot warehouse.
Magellan is the nation's largest service disabled veteran owned small business logistics solutions provider, with a strong focus on hiring transitioning military service men and women.
Jacksonville is the perfect location for a company like Magellan. With the on-the-job experience of our large military population, and institutions like the University of North Florida offering logistics degrees, we have a well-trained and growing workforce. Florida is the third most populous state in the nation, and Jacksonville is the state’s most populous city. And with two major interstates, I-95 and I-10, companies can reach 60 million consumers within a one-day truck drive.
Thanks to Senator Rubio and Congressman Rutherford for putting a spotlight on this amazing Jacksonville success story and for being such strong champions for northeast Florida.
