Less-populous states are also strengthening their logistics possibilities and tying them to complementary assets to boost delivery efficiency.

“We’re very aware and active in helping companies solve their supply chain issues,” says Kristen Rosa, economic development coordinator, City and County of Butte-Silver Bow, Mont. “We may not be a high population state, but we do have good transportation infrastructure, state-of-the-art telecommunications services, abundant, affordable supplies of water, and plentiful natural gas supplied by NorthWestern Energy.”

All of those amenities come together at the Montana Connections Business Development Park, located at the intersections of I-15 and I-90 and the BNSF and Union Pacific Class I railways, which makes most North American destinations reachable by truck or rail within one day, Rosa says. Shipments reach out from this hub to major market centers such as Calgary, Salt Lake City, Spokane, Seattle, Las Vegas, San Diego and Minneapolis.

The Port of Montana, Rosa adds, includes a full-service transloading facility offering storage services, certified scales, distribution services, railcar and truck transload services, and inventory management and control. It also houses Old Dominion Freight Line and FedEx Freight’s 67-door cross-dock facility that is used as a regional relay facility and gateway service center for shipments to and from Canada.
