Distribution

Port Lansing has it all when it comes to distribution. It is home to CN and CSX railroad main lines, UPS’ Michigan air hub and Capital Region International Airport’s 8,500-foot runway. Easy access to Interstates I-69 and I-96 and four-lane highway U.S. 127 further guarantees that shippers are well connected. And consider this fact: 91 million consumers in Canada and the United States are within one-day truck service of Port Lansing.
