International Distribution

Missouri is home to many global businesses, due in part to our ability to get your goods anywhere in the world via river, rail, road and air.

We are home to three Foreign Trade Zones, served by every Class 1 railroad, and can move your goods across North America in any direction.

We are also home to an extensive river infrastructure, allowing the efficient and unhindered movement of goods, year round, to the Gulf of Mexico and beyond.

And for companies looking to engage in foreign trade, Missouri’s three foreign trade zones are spread throughout the state.

In Their Words

For a business like ours that ships coffee to a lot of places, it is important to be centrally located. There are many places we can get to quickly from Missouri.

Central location has been key to Bodine’s success...you can get anywhere from Missouri, pretty much in any direction.

We export to Japan, China, France, Spain, Hungary, and Scotland. I have also shipped to South Africa, and I’ll be looking to start some work in New Zealand before too long.

The work ethic here is really good. People come in and work hard. They’re used to working hard before we hire them.

I've lived in a lot of places, and there is a difference here in how people conduct themselves. There is a strong work ethic and friendliness that I haven't found elsewhere.
