The connections logistics companies need to deliver performance
The 4 Star Industrial Park offers an ideal location for the companies that manage and deliver what other businesses need.
Our region is easily accessible by road, rail, river, and air, and the 4 Star Industrial Park is located to make the most of each. By road, we’re just five minutes from Interstate 69, which stretches from Port Huron to Houston, with connecting roads designed to speed semi traffic to the highway. That means you’ll have fast access to Detroit, Indianapolis, Memphis, and the Gulf Coast. U.S. Highway 41 provides another access point, and both roads give you quick links to Interstates in all directions, including I-24, I-57, I-64, and I-65. All that means your facility will be within a day’s drive of 141 million people and many Atlantic and Gulf Coast ports.
For inbound and outbound rail shipping, 4 Star Industrial Park is served by a CSX rail spur, with plenty of room for you to build connections from the spur to your facility. CSX offers connections with major seaports, among them. Charleston, Wilmington, Savannah, and Mobile.
The Kyndle Region has plenty of air options for air cargo, with the UPS Worldport® in Louisville just over two hours away (and the FedEx Superhub in Memphis within a half-day’s drive). Henderson City-County Airport (KEHR) is just 16 miles away, with 5,500-foot runways that are scheduled to be extended. Within a half-hour is Evansville Regional’s (KEVV) 8,000-foot runways and regular service from four major airlines. You’re an easy drive from the international airports in Louisville, Nashville, and Memphis, giving you fast access to the world.
We’re also close to river shipping. 4 Star Industrial Park is located between the Ohio, Green, and Tradewater Rivers, with the Henderson County Riverport just 16 miles away. An active Foreign Trade Zone and customs port-of-entry, the Riverport’s equipment can lift up to 250,000 pounds. Indefinite storage is readily available.
Finally, our area offers a large and highly skilled workforce. Within 75 miles of the Park, you’ll find more than half a million workers. To keep that labor force strong and skilled, the business community works closely with K-12 and postsecondary education leaders, ensuring that students receive the training they need to serve the goals of local employers, including training for careers in transportation, trucking, automotive technology, and logistics.
