Missouri is North America’s Logistics Center

When it comes to expanding your business, location is one of the most important factors. Centrally located in the Midwest, and in the center of North America, Missouri is a booming epicenter of commerce. In Missouri, you can send your goods or products anywhere they need to go via our international airports, extensive river barge system, or any of the United States Class 1 railroads.

Additionally, Missouri allows you to reach more than half of the continental U.S. in less than a day’s drive, with most other states reachable in less than two. With a total of 33,873 highway miles in Missouri, you’ll be able to get where you need to, when you need to be there.

Not keen on driving? You can fly nonstop to more than 70 destinations across North America from our two international airports or one of our many regional airports.

Missouri is also home to the confluence of the two largest rivers in North America, the Missouri and the Mississippi, and is home to the northernmost ice-free port on the Mississippi with unrestricted access to the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, so much agricultural product is shipped via river barge from the St. Louis region that a 15-mile section of the Mississippi is becoming known as the “Ag Coast” of America.

With all of these logistical tools at our disposal it is no wonder why companies like PepsiDollar TreeCVS and more have chosen Missouri as the best place for their distribution centers. The only question left is: what can we move for you?
