With four interstate highways intersecting Central Indiana (I-65, I-69, I-70, and I-74) and the extension of I-69 coming through Morgan County, ultimately connecting Canada to Mexico, the “Crossroads of America” provides easy access to major U.S. and global markets.

Only a short drive away, the Indianapolis International Airport (IND) was named “Best Airport in North America” by Airports Council International in 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014 and is home to the 2nd largest FedEx air hub in the world, moving more than one million tons of cargo annually.

Indiana is home to more than 4,700 miles of mainline rail track. Morgan County’s 30 miles of short line are operated by Indiana Southern Railroad (ISRR) with connections to CSX Transportation (CSXT), Indiana Rail Road Company (INRD), and Norfolk Southern (NS), enabling access to Asia in as little as 20 days.

Indiana has the only statewide port system that offers international connections via the Great Lakes and Ohio-Mississippi River system.
