Nebraska delivers to the U.S. Supply Chain

A study from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development revealed that Nebraska’s geographic center in the U.S. gives it a great advantage for transportation, warehousing, logistics and distribution projects across the world. Regardless if your primary interest is rail, trucking, air, shipping or warehousing, we all face many of the same difficulties. Joining the Nebraska Logistics Council is your invitation to grow and learn with others in logistics to share solutions and create opportunities.  Nebraska’s long, rich history as a host to this major transportation corridor laid the foundation for its modern transportation system. Nebraska is strategically located in the center of the country. Interstate 80, one of the nation’s busiest transportation routes, stretches from one end of the state to the other, in all, 482 miles. Seven national highways run north-south across the state, making Nebraska an ideal location for companies looking for access in the NAFTA trade corridor. The state also is served by two Class 1 rail systems. Today supply chain and logistics management companies are discovering what railroads and trucking firms have long known. Right-in-the-middle-of-it-all: Nebraska is a great place to do business. Nebraska Department of Economic Development

PAINTING A PICTURE

Crossed by thundering herds of bison, intrepid pioneers, and the transcontinental railroad, Nebraska has a steeped history as the crossroads of our great nation.

The Great Platte River Road was the grand corridor of America’s westward expansion. The Oregon-California Trail, the Mormon Trail, and the Pony Express Route all converged in the valley of the Platte, forming the superhighway of its day. The Platte River Valley became the natural route for the first transcontinental railroad, reaching westward from its roots in Omaha, Nebraska all the way to Sacramento, California.

Ideal location, low traffic congestion, positive business climate, quality affordable workforce, and the absence of inventory taxes are just a few of the many reasons to make Nebraska the home of your next transportation, warehousing, and logistics center.
