White County, Indiana is in the heart of the Heartland, located midway between Chicago and Indianapolis. That means we’re between two of the nation’s biggest transportation hubs, giving local businesses fast access to road and rail networks, along with air and ocean shipping. It’s easy to bring raw materials into our area, and just as easy to send your finished products out to markets throughout the U.S. and the world. More than 15 trucking companies serve White County, too, so you’re assured of available service and competitive rates.
For example, the Mid-America Commerce Park is less than a mile from Interstate 65, so a truck can pull out of a loading dock and be traveling at Interstate speed in just over two minutes. The Hoosier Lift transload facility located at the same park makes it easy to load and unload railcar freight. It’s operated by Genesee & Wyoming’s Toledo, Peoria & Western, with close connections to a CSX mainline that also serves our county.
When faster shipping is needed, you’ll appreciate our proximity to the massive FedEx Air Cargo hub in Indianapolis, just a couple of hours down I-65. You’ll also be close to airports in Indianapolis, Chicago, and Fort Wayne, giving you access to all domestic and global markets. And, if your company operates its own aircraft, you’ll appreciate the convenience of White County Airport’s 5,000-foot runway and instrument approach, as well as 24/7 access to jet fuel and avgas.
