Located in the center of North America, 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, sea and air.
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.
