Trade Corridor Network
The Kansas City region has a rich history as a center for commerce. Its heartland, river-based location made it a natural crossroads for transcontinental rail, interstate and waterway. Over time, Greater Kansas City has established itself as the leading center for trade and distribution within the central United States and is emerging now as a leader in international trade.
Located in the heart of America at the hub of the transcontinental and NAFTA trade corridors, Kansas City is a center of choice for warehousing, manufacturing and distribution. Business has prospered due in large part to the region's abundant, multi-modal transportation network.
