The directory below selectively highlights ports, railroads, airports and other organizations involved in providing transportation infrastructure and services to support business development in their service areas.  GUIDE Profiles may further describe the scope of their services and capabilities to assist investors. 

We will disclose active working relationships as shown in the table for Location Consultants.  We identify specific contacts of potential interest on a selective basis, as in the case of the following initial examples.  The directory is not limited exclusively to organizations which maintain active programs to support the attraction of foreign direct investment projects to their service areas, but we will generally highlight such organizations as more relevant to users of this site.

Suggestions are welcome for updates to this directory

The presence or absence of any organization on these lists, or their position on the lists, does not imply any endorsement or opinion about their services, nor by them about our own.  This is not intended to be a comprehensive list.

The selections are simply intended to be helpful to executives who may be unaware of such contacts, or how to reach them or their websites quickly.

Please contact us directly for relevant introductions or any additional contacts, market knowledge, and research which we don't publish.

US Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) directory - includes some ports, airports

BRAC Military Base Changes - includes some ports, airports

If you contact the professionals listed below, please let them know how you found them.  Please also let us know whether this directory and their capabilities were helpful to you.

We specialize in personal, independent introductions to relevant professional service providers such as business location strategy consultants and our many economic development contacts according to the project interests of the executives we serve.

Sites of possible interest to railroad history enthusiasts and train enthusiasts in general

Our focus above is on rail services which still move the freight for businesses today, rather than passenger services or the colorful history of the many great railroads which no longer exist.  It can be useful, however, to understand the history behind modern rail services, and how the railroads have been evolving in recent decades.  Some rail enthusiast groups are well-informed about recent changes and trends.

For example, many valuable rail infrastructure investments in the USA and other countries have been sadly neglected or destroyed, creating higher reliance on less energy efficient forms of freight transportation.  If a business has a strong need for reliable rail services at a new location, some "due diligence" may be required about the level and expected continuity of services offered along critical routes, as well as capacity constraints or route congestion which may affect the future lead times, delays, and competitive costs associated with their rail freight delivery services.
