New Mexico’s geographic position, modern transportation infrastructure, abundant land, and productive and affordable labor force combine to fulfill many logistics requirements.
Supported by three interstate freeways: I-25 (north-south), I-40 and I-10 (east-west), in addition to two- and four-lane highways, an extensive railway system, and regional and international airports, New Mexico offers direct access to the East Coast, the West Coast, the Midwest, and the borders of Mexico and Canada. From New Mexico, it’s possible to reach Texas, Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Utah within one day’s trucking, and California markets in two days. The state is also equidistant to the ports of Southern California and the ports of Texas.
Distribution companies, manufacturers, and other logistics-sensitive business are well-positioned in New Mexico to serve these markets by rail and air as well. Union Pacific is investing $400 million into a state-of-the-art intermodal facility that will offer exceptional access to Mexico at the Santa Teresa Port of Entry. And more than 60 airports serve the state with varying levels of service, most of the commercial traffic flowing through the Albuquerque International Sunport, and the El Paso International Airport.
