Great Plains offers true multimodal transportation opportunities with convenient access to major Midwestern and global markets. With its proximity to major highways, railways and barges, Great Plains provides for ease of shipping regionally, nationally and globally.
Great Plains is located on U.S. Highway 400, the major east-west route through southern Kansas - a route that is also listed as the No. 3 Congressional Priority Corridor in the U.S., which provides easy access for shipping and receiving. This super-two lane, on four-lane right-of-way provides a hint of what U.S. 400 will look like in the future. U.S. 400 also connects with I-44, and plans are being made to turn the eastern most 28 miles of that connection into a four-lane, limited access freeway.
In today's market, it is difficult to find rail-served sites. Great Plains offers a direct connection to the Union Pacific Railroad, with a switch off of the main line currently in place and operational. With 30 miles of rail on-site servicing buildings and parcels of all sizes, there is a location at Great Plains that can meet your needs.
Great Plains has a rail service agreement with Progress Rail Services to switch out any cars needing to be off-loaded at the site. Ready access to this asset can greatly reduce shipping and storage charges for your business.
Southeast Kansas has access to several commercial airports depending on your choice of carrier and flight route, including:
