From Derby City to River City to Falls City to The ‘Ville, Louisville has many nicknames, but none better represents its relationship to the American economy than The Gateway to the South. This metropolis of 1.2 million people is the capital and largest city of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and lies just across the border from Indiana and not too far from Ohio and Illinois. In other words, Louisville represents the entrance to the South from three of the largest states in the Midwest, so that trade between the two regions becomes concentrated here. Such choice access to interstate trade has made Louisville a major center of operations not only for companies that carry out that trade, but also for manufacturers, who want to enter their products into the Midwestern and Southern markets with ease. From General Electric to Ford to Brown Forman to Heaven Hill, numerous goods production and food processing operations are located here.

As a major city and the gateway between the Midwest and the South, Louisville combines a number of unique business opportunities and advantages. Unfortunately, each of those opportunities and advantages comes with a price, and that price often takes the form of shipping difficulties. Being such a huge city means it has a vast workforce to call upon, but it also means shippers have to share the road with thousands of commuters. Tying the Midwest to the South means Louisville has easy access to markets for its products, but also that it has to deal with traffic congestion from all the drivers and shippers traveling between the two regions. And hosting so many advanced manufacturing businesses provides jobs and wealth to the city, but also means that there is a steady stream of supply trucks heading into Louisville on any given day, and often blocking one another in the process.
AirFreight.com knows all these challenges and has a strategy to deal with each of them. We are committed to supplying businesses in communities throughout northern Kentucky, including not just Lexington, but also Fort Knox, Elizabethtown, and Shelbyville.
