Why St. Louis?

Among six top Midwestern markets that were analyzed for their “Logistics Quotient,” St. Louis ranks second, just behind Chicago, according to a 2006 study by the St. Onge Company, a premier supply-chain and engineering consulting firm. St. Louis also ranks near the top nationally and ahead of Kansas City, Louisville, Indianapolis, and Memphis.

Low congestion

In a significant trend, distribution centers increasingly are moving to regions where land is cheaper, sufficient labor is available and, most importantly, a less congested system of highways is available. St. Louis has below-average congestion and the lowest Travel Time Index of all competing areas in the Midwest. And Gateway Commerce Center is perfectly located to avoid the more congested areas near the urban core.
