Warehousing/Logistics

Miami County, strategically placed in North Central Indiana, is within one day's driving distance to 65 percent of the U. S. population. Two U. S. highways, 24 (east/west) and 31 (north/south) , run through and intersect in the county aiding in business travel. Our community is within 65 miles of Interstate 65, 465, 70, 74, 69 and 80/90.

With the current upgrades being made to US 24 & US 31 slated to be completed in 2013, accessibility to markets will be even further streamlined.

Land and buildings are available in key locations throughout our county to accommodate various sizes of warehousing/distribution facilities.
