NortheastRegion_SmallMap_RegionalMaps

The Hannibal/Kirksville Region sits on the Mississippi and is served by two interstate highways, four Class 1 railroads and regional airports, enabling efficient river, road, air and rail distribution in all directions. Four-lane US-36 also provides one the fastest, least congested truck routes between Kansas City and Chicago.

The region is a prolific producer of soybeans, with additional strengths in advanced manufacturing, food solutions, information technology, and logistics.

Companies look to the region for competitive land and labor costs, favorable tax structures, and skilled vocational talent.
