Missouri knows logistics, and can get your product to the global market quickly and efficiently. We are North America’s rail, river, road, air and pipeline crossroads, and a booming epicenter of commerce.
We can get your goods anywhere in the world via our international airports, extensive river barge infrastructure, or any of the US Class 1 railroads, and Missouri has direct access via rail to ports on every U.S. coast and in Mexico and Canada.
Missouri is home to the confluence of the two largest rivers in North America, the Missouri and Mississippi, and is home to the most northern ice free port on the Mississippi with unrestricted access to the Gulf of Mexico.
Missouri’s central location allows companies to reach more than 50% of the continental U.S. within one-day’s drive, and most of the rest within two. 96% of Missouri’s population lives within 15 miles of a 4-lane divided highway.
Additionally, Missouri’s 10,700 miles of pipelines carry nine different commodities, a major asset to area manufacturers.

And look who’s here and already taking advantage of our distribution strengths:
We have been very impressed with the business-friendly approach that the State of Missouri, Johnson County and the City of Warrensburg have provided. This project demonstrates our commitment to western Missouri by creating hundreds of jobs in the region. We are proud to become a bigger part of the local community.— Bob Sasser / Dollar Tree
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.— Tricia Zimmer Ferguson / Kaldi's Coffee Roasting Company
Central location has been key to Bodine’s success...you can get anywhere from Missouri, pretty much in any direction.— Bob Lloyd / Bodine Aluminum
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.— Leroy Cardwell / Cardwell Lumber
This move to Missouri is a well thought through strategy where all the benefits for all counterparts are optimized. The local authorities have been very easy to work with to help develop this project.— Raimo Helasmäki / Nammo AS
Missouri is perfectly positioned at the intersection of the east-west and north-south shipping corridors. We can ship products anywhere in the US in a couple of days and eliminate a lot of waste in rent and taxes. This strategic location and cost savings will allow us to innovate, invest in our people and increase our competitiveness in the marketplace.— Dan Foust / BH North America
