Louisville Third-Party Logistics Q&As
1). What characteristics make Louisville attractive to the 3PL industry?
Since the city’s beginnings, the foundation of Louisville’s economy has been the cargo and shipping industries. Much of that is thanks to the city’s strategic location and its convenient access to rail, road, air, and water transportation.
Positioned in the central U.S., Louisville is within a day’s drive of two-thirds of the country’s population. Three major interstate highways (I-64, I-65 & I-71), and two interstate beltways (I-264 & I-265) provide easy access and egress to and from the city. The Louisville and Nashville Railroad, a 6,000-mile rail system that crosses 13 states, was founded here and is serviced by two major freight railroads, CSX and Norfolk Southern. Downtown Louisville is less than seven miles from the Louisville International Airport, the second busiest U.S. airport for cargo traffic, handling almost 5 billion pounds of cargo each year. Additionally, Louisville, which sits on the Ohio River, boasts one of the top 10 inland ports in the country, providing water transport straight through to the Gulf of Mexico. The McAlpine Locks and Dam allows for shipping past the Falls of the Ohio, the area’s only obstacle to river traffic.
With convenient access to various modes of transportation, Louisville offers fast, reliable distribution of inventories throughout the country.
2). What provisions are available for managing inventory stored at the Louisville public warehousing facility?
