You've propably heard the the old mantra about what to look for in real estate.  It matters where you locate (or relocate), but it matters for different reasons today than it did even a decade ago.  We are sowing the seeds to make sure Terre Haute is prominent on the map for your business.

Our central location means you can connect to customers and suppliers quickly.  We're home to the Terre Haute Regional Airport, the third busiest airport in Indiana with its 9,020 foot runway.  Our Class I rail service is provided by CSX Transportation and the Indiana Rail Road Company, the latter has 500 miles of rail, hauling more than 15 million tons of goods annually.  Terre Haute is situtatued on Interstate 70 (east/west) and U.S. Highway 41 (north/south).  We are equisdant to Indiana's three Ports which are accessible by rail and highway.  At 120 miles (193 kilometers) Burns Harbor/Portage is our deep water port by way of the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway.  Jeffersonville Portage and Mount Vernon Portage , located in the southrern corners of Indaina, are our two river ports by the Ohio River.  

Indiana's highway system features primary and secondary roads including 14 interstate highways. It is served by several commercial airports, the largest being Indianapolis International Airport. There are over 4,500 miles of public railway in Indiana. One of the nation's largest railroads operates in Indiana: CSX Corporation.  The state's border is 57% water.  Yes, Indiana connects to two "marine Highways" that carry 33 million truck loads of cargo per year.  The three public ports that serve the state are Burns Harbor which is a deep sea port via the St. Lawrence Sea Way, and the two river ports Jeffersonville and Mount Vernon by way of the Ohio River.  Indiana's Ports rank 7th in Domestic Waterborne Shipping and 14th in total Waterborne Shipping. 

An initiative called Conexus Indiana Logistics Council, is a statewide, industry-driven initiative focused on growing the state's advanced manufacturing and logistics industries. The Logistics Council, in part, works to enhance the environment for companies in advanced manufacturing and logistics to grow their business, taking advantage of Indiana's position at the heart of the global supply chair. 

Terre Haute itself could not be better positioned from a transportation perspective, centered in America's industrial, distribution and transportation heartland. Our strengths include the Terre Haute International Airport with its 9,020 foot runway (the fourth longest in the State of Indiana). Class I Rail service is provided by CSX Transportation, and the Indiana Rail Road Company has 500 miles of rail, hauling more than 15 million tons of goods annually. Terre Haute is situated on Interstate Highway 70 (east/west) and US Highway 41 (north/south). The city is equidistant from the major (north/south) Interstate Highways 69 and 65 and approximately 120 miles from each of the three ports that serve the  Indiana.

Our location near both the population and geographic centers of the United States is one of our most powerful elements for success. We are truly the Crossroads of America.
