Businesses in Punta Gorda take advantage of one of the most accessible transportation hubs in the nation.

Being part of the nation’s #2 ranked infrastructure is only part of the story. Add one of the fastest-growing airports in the nation, access to four major sea ports, and a network of roadways that includes four state highways, two federal highways, and one major interstate, and you have one of the most business-friendly locations found anywhere in Florida, or the nation.

By Land

Punta Gorda is ideally located just off interstate I-75, providing quick and convenient access to all points in Florida and beyond. Premier industrial real estate is available for immediate relocation. Punta Gorda is easy to reach via a network of state and federal highways.

Punta Gorda also provides connectivity to several rail lines offering national access.

By Air

With record-breaking passenger numbers and the constant addition of new non-stop destinations, Punta Gorda Airport (PGD) is the 11th busiest airport in Florida. Located just a few miles from downtown, PGD offers convenience to both commercial and private passengers. You will find facilities for both private and charter aircraft at PGD. A recently-completed terminal expansion ensures a pleasant traveler experience. PGD is home to 400 general aviation aircraft, flight schools and dozens of aviation and non-aviation businesses.

If your business requires an airport location, the 4,300-acre Punta Gorda Interstate Airport Park represents an impressive global opportunity, not only in access but in large-scale site selection and flexibility. Shovel-ready options range from a single acre to more than 1,000 acres and are developed for high performance with superb water, power, telecommunications and ground transportation infrastructure.

By Sea

There are four major seaports within a driving distance of less than 200 miles. These include the Port of Manatee, Florida’s deepest port offering access to the enhanced Panama Canal for trade routes to the western U.S. and Pacific Rim markets. Other ports include the Port of Tampa, Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, and the Port of Miami.
