Jefferson County, Illinois is a crossroads in so many ways — and that pays off for companies needing quick connections to the world. To start with, we’re at the connection between Interstates 57 and 64, and a short drive from I-70, providing fast access throughout the Midwest, South, the Plains, and the East. In fact, more than 133 million consumers live within an eight-hour truck drive. That connectivity also places a labor force of more than 639,000 within an hour of our businesses.
Companies needing rail service will appreciate us as the junction of three Class I rail lines, with the Milano Railway Logistics transload facility providing a local interchange and connections to BNSF, Canadian National, Evansville Western, Norfolk Southern, Union Pacific, and CSX. Milano also provides storage, trucking, a laydown yard, and logistics services, along with high-volume metal recycling.
