One reason you will find so many Fortune 500 companies in Southeast Iowa is due to the unique convergence of multiple high capacity transportation systems all in one area. The option to ship raw materials and finished products by barge, rail, or truck in such a relatively small geographic area is a rare asset. Southeast Iowa is home to the intersection of the Mississippi river and the main BNSF east-west route, and our 4-lane highway systems in every direction put 40 million customers within 300 miles or four and half hours of drive time.
