Kansas City offers many benefits of locating an e-Commerce fulfillment facility within the region. Witness the benefits delivered by the KC region in this energetic piece.

Kansas City is not only a great place to live and work, but also offers companies vital transportation and logistics opportunities throughout the region and we’ve captured it in this short sizzle reel.

Overall in the KC region there is over 3 million sq. ft. of spec already up or being built now. Before, KC was vertical ready, and now, KC has positioned itself to be ready to accommodate tenants immediately.

Unsurpassed intermodal capacity, two day service to 95% of the U.S., and low transportation costs all prove that Kansas City is Supply Chain Centered.


"Kansas City was the most optimal location to get products shipped anywhere in the United States in 3 days or less. No other city could offer that kind of guarantee without expedited shipping costs."
