Air Cargo
In fiscal year 2007, air cargo operators moved more than 166 million pounds of air cargo through Jacksonville International Airport (JAX). Outstanding facilities which have recently come on-line continue to help JAX meet the demands of shippers utilizing and serving the Jacksonville market.

Moving air cargo through JAX is a snap. Major air freight companies operating out of JAX provide 24-hour domestic and worldwide service with a distribution network second to none. Our air cargo center gives you space to move around. The airside airfreight ramp has some 776,700 square feet on concrete ramp capable of accommodating five B-747s simultaneously and as many as eight smaller aircraft during peak morning and nighttime loading periods. To date, the Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) has more than tripled the amount of covered air cargo space at the airport to 215,000 square feet.

Jacksonville is ideally suited for such facilities. We have plenty of land around the airport, a mild climate year-round and an experienced work force. Jacksonville is at the crossroads of three major interstate highways (I-10, I-95 and I-75) and three of the nation's commercial trade railroads. A back-door road to I-95's beltway (I-295) will expedite access straight into and out of JAX. This infrastructure, along with JAX's foreign trade zone number 64 and U.S. federal inspection service in the airport's International Arrivals Building, combines to give you the best distribution facility in the southeastern United States.
