Being in the heart of the United States, we're intersected by Interstates 44 and 49, and major state highways like Route 66 and Highways 43 and 60 crisscross our region, giving distribution centers and warehouse operations fast access to markets throughout North America. Dozens of intrastate and interstate trucking companies are located here and major overnight delivery services serve companies in our area, many with same-day and two-day shipping in the United States
Rail shippers benefit from the multiple connection and competitive advantages of being served by the Kansas City Southern, BNSF Railway, and Union Pacific. The railroads connect with two service-focused regional carriers, the Missouri & Northern Arkansas and the South Kansas & Oklahoma Railroads. We even have fast, 90-minute access to water transportation through Tulsa's Port of Catoosa.
And if you do business by air, you'll appreciate both scheduled and corporate service at the convenient Joplin Regional Airport with multiple daily direct market flights to Dallas-Fort Worth. Even more passenger and cargo services are available in nearby Bentonville, Springfield, Tulsa, and Kansas City.
