As a city of 70,000, Decatur might not look like one of the industrial giants of the Midwest, but looks can be deceiving. The city is home to production facilities for some of the most important manufacturers in modern America, including Caterpillar and Mueller Co. The city is also a center of food processing, with giants like Archer Daniels Midland and Tate & Lyle operating some of their most critical facilities in this location. Combined with the city’s growing logistics and distribution industry and its strategic location in the heart of the Downstate region, these facilities have made Decatur a production powerhouse and kept the whole area wealthy and vibrant.

As a relatively small city with a massive industrial base, Decatur faces a unique set of challenges when trying to get its most important supplies. Cities with industrial supply needs of this caliber tend to be many times larger and thus to have the infrastructure to match. But Decatur has a relatively limited set of roads, and suppliers have to share those roads in order to deliver to their Decatur customers. This leads to endless congestion and frequent traffic jams, both of which tend to disrupt Decatur businesses. Only by planning ahead and building redundancy into their supply lines can those businesses stay productive in the face of all this uncertainty.
