Regional Freight Outlook: A Report on Growing Freight Transportation and Logistics in Kansas City
The Kansas City region is a distinguished center for transportation and logistics-driven business and the region has continued building on its excellence in this area over the last several decades.
This reputation was built on the strong transportation infrastructure and business climate that exists in the 18-county study area. In an effort to sustain this momentum and further expand the region’s presence in transportation and logistics, the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) and Kansas City SmartPort initiated the Kansas City Regional Freight Outlook (RFO). The RFO was developed in collaboration with the Kansas and Missouri Departments of Transportations (KDOT and MoDOT).
The overall vision for the Kansas City Regional Freight Outlook is to positively impact and accommodate the growth of freight transportation and logistics in the 18-county study area.
