Evaluation of Logistics Led Economic Development

The objectives of this project are to: (1) Ensure that the planned program of strategic new investment in freight transportation infrastructure is truly capitalizing on existing assets. (2) Develop a systematic approach to understanding certain types of industries and how transportation investments may affect those industries' expansion and relocation plans. (3) Understand the characteristics of successful freight investments in other states and nations and how they can be appropriately applied in Florida. (4) Provide a decision support framework and necessary guidance for evaluating future investments on their likelihood of success (including projections on job creation and return on investment). (5) Provide the necessary context and Florida-specific circumstances for duplicating successes in other regions.
