Warehousing and Distribution

Warehousing and Distribution

Southeast Mississippi is centrally located within one of the fastest growing regions in the nation, which gives warehouse and distribution facilities easy access to their market. Combine a strategic location with a robust transportation network, and this allows companies to make seamless connections to other major metropolitan areas. In fact, Mississippi is within a day's drive of more than 50% of the U.S. business population.




• Warehouse and distribution companies can take advantage of three federal interstate highways, multiple four-lane highways and four in-state commercial ports, three of which allow for deep water access.
• Companies like Dole and Chiquita call the Mississippi Gulf Coast home. Both maintain warehouse and distribution facilities at the newly enhanced Port of Gulfport.
• Located at the University of Southern Mississippi, The Center for Logistics, Trade and Transportation provides a competitive advantage to the logistics industry through its multidisciplinary activities in training a growing workforce in transportation strategy and the latest technology.
