Mississippi is strategically positioned in the center of the fastest growing region in the United States.
Major air carriers serve the state with connections to principal cities throughout the world. The highways and Interstates place Mississippi within a day’s drive of 55% of U.S. businesses and major population centers. And, over 2,500 miles of rail track cover the state and connect to the national rail network.
The state is the gateway to all major U.S., Canadian, and Latin American markets, with inland water ports on the Mississippi River and Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, two deepwater ports in Gulfport and Pascagoula and three Foreign Trade Zones.
