Strategically situated. Connected for speed.

Nestled on the central southern border of Georgia in the heart of the booming Southeastern domestic market, Brooks County offers key proximity to vital consumer densities as well as the nation’s leading global ports.

Look to Brooks to move fast and smart, with logistical options including:

Highway: In a location that puts 16 states within a one-day drive, your operation enjoys fast pan-directional access through connections that include State Route SR 333, U.S. Route US 221, and U.S. Route US 84, with I-75 just 14 miles away from the Brooks County Industrial Park and I-10 just 24 miles away.

Class I Rail: Superior short-line service through an onsite Georgia and Florida Railway connection puts your products on the move, and CSX and Norfolk Southern available connectivity puts the world at your door with Class I coverage and convenience.

Georgia/Florida Ports: It really pays to use the fast-moving, fast-growing Georgia port system. While state-of-the-art facilities ensure global speed and the utmost ease and convenience, the Georgia Port Tax Credit Bonus also adds momentum to your push for profitability.
