1 Kansas City: The Crossroads of Connectivity Edgerton, KS

2 The Kansas City Transportation Advantage Kansas City is... #1 RAIL by tonnage in U.S. #3 TRUCK center in U.S. Kansas City has long been a hub for transportation. Its growing economy, geographic location, business-friendly environment, low tax rate and developed and evolving infrastructure contribute to this well-deserved reputation. It all culminates with Kansas City being an attractive location for transportation and logistics operations. The largest rail center in the United States by tonnage More Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) space than any other U.S. city (more than 10,000 acres) Located at the crossroads of four of the nation s major interstate highways (I-35, I-70, I-29 and I-49) The heart of a rail corridor spanning coast to coast across the United States and extending from Canada to Mexico (NAFTA Railway) The Kansas City International Airport, which moves more air cargo each year than any air center in a six-state region Located on the nation s largest navigable inland waterway (Missouri / Mississippi River system) 1 Logistics Park Kansas City

3 At the Intersection of Opportunity Whether by highway, water, rail or air, Kansas City offers excellent transportation advantages. Because of its central location and outstanding multimodal infrastructure, it is easier and more cost-efficient to ship into and out of Kansas City, making Logistics Park Kansas City (LPKC) an ideal location for production facilities, warehouses and distribution centers. When you are located in the nation s heartland, you have an immediate cost advantage when shipping raw materials and finished goods. Proximity to Major Markets 1200 MILES San Francisco 90 Seattle MILES 70 Denver 500 MILES KANSAS Kansas City 44 Chicago Boston New York San Diego 25 Dallas 45 Houston Logistics Park Kansas City

4 Multimodal Transportation = Flexibility Kansas City is a prime player in the emerging international trade corridor. Its access to the West Coast and East Coast via connectivity to the U.S. intermodal network provides for the efficient flow of goods. Kansas City s strategic location at the crossroads of highway and rail traffic enhances its position in the global marketplace. Air Kansas City is one of the lowest-cost air travel markets in the country. It is served by 10 major commercial airlines and their connection partners, with approximately 200 daily departures and nonstop service to more than 50 destinations. Highway No other city in the United States has more freeway-lane miles per capita than Kansas City. It is one of eight cities in the United States in which four interstates intersect. Kansas City s highway infrastructure includes: Four interstates (I-35, I-70, I-29 and I-49) Four interstate linkages (I-435, I-635, I-470 and I-670) Nine U.S. highways Rail Kansas City ranks first in U.S. freight volume by tonnage and is generally regarded as the second largest rail center. Five Class I rail carriers, three regional lines and a local switching carrier (Kansas City Terminal) serve the area. From Kansas City, you can reach 80 percent of the United States in less than two days; 100 percent within three days. 3 Logistics Park Kansas City

5 Internet Fulfillment Kansas City is well-positioned for internet fulfillment (package and parcel) due to its proximity to the nation s leading less-than-truckload (LTL) and parcel shippers terminals.

6 Labor Supply The state of Kansas and the Kansas City region offer a highly motivated and well-educated workforce with a strong work ethic. The community and region surrounding LPKC offer an ample workforce supply projected for both the long-term and short-term. Skilled Workforce The education system in Kansas contributes to its successful industry. Both the public high school graduation rate and the percentage of the population with a bachelor s degree are above the national average. The progressive business climate, coupled with a top-notch educational system, has resulted in an adept, well-skilled workforce. The U.S. Census Bureau states that the workforce in the Kansas City region contributes 40 percent more value per hour than the national average. Supply Chain Trained Kansas City is committed to a supply chain education initiative that brings those involved in the transportation and logistics industry together with area educational institutions to identify training needs. Through high schools, universities and colleges in the region, there are several programs that offer training to educate the workforce with the necessary skills for current and upcoming jobs in the transportation and logistics industry. Supply Chain Support Companies From air cargo to warehousing, the Kansas City area is home to many different types of companies that directly or indirectly support international trade efforts. Because of its position as a top-tier logistics hub in the United States, Kansas City has an array of businesses linked to the supply chain, including companies that provide loading and handling, packaging, trucking and management of the shipping process. 5 Logistics Park Kansas City

7 In Kansas City, the transportation industry currently employs about 53,000 workers or 4.1 percent of the region s total workforce.

The state has built a diverse industry base that includes bioscience, animal health, energy technology, aviation, advanced manufacturing and agriculture. Companies benefit from the state s central location and access to major transportation corridors and recruit from some of the nation s best universities and technical schools. 6 Logistics Park Kansas City
