THE AIRPORT PALMETTO CORRIDOR… It’s all business here!
Surrounded by the municipalities of Doral, Sweetwater, Miami Springs, Hialeah, and Coral Gables, the unincorporated area of The Airport Palmetto Hub offers owners and users one less level of government bureaucracy. Heavy manufacturers and production companies find this especially appealing as zoning, electrical, water, and other government regulated items can often entangle their operations – costing them both time and money. Many cities in the area require business use permits, inspections, and are quick to fine businesses and/or slap violations on them. Additionally, property taxes are usually higher in incorporated cities. Why bother with a city government if you don’t have to?
Some of our clients in the logistics industry have a strong preference to be in The Airport Palmetto Hub. One of the main reasons is because it takes their trucks about an additional fifteen minutes to cross under the Palmetto Expressway into Doral from MIA. If you do the math on this cost, it can really add up, especially if you’re in the air freight business where you already have extremely tight profit margins. Those transporting perishables, such as flowers and produce, are even more concerned about the mileage and amount of time from MIA to their warehouse. The strictly business environment of The Airport Palmetto Hub is free of school zones and contains less traffic lights than the surrounding industrial areas which further increases efficiency.
