Fast and easy access by road, rail, and air
Cherokee County, Kansas is located right in the heart of the Central U.S. With Interstates 44 and 49 just minutes away, we offer fast and easy access to Kansas City, Tulsa, St. Louis, and the many markets beyond them — allowing you to move product to most of the nation’s consumer markets in just a day and half.
If you obtain raw materials or ship products in larger quantities, you’ll appreciate Cherokee County’s extensive rail access. We’re crossed by a BNSF Railway mainline that connects us with the nation’s largest cities and ports, and we’re served by multiple shortlines that provide responsive handling of the local companies’ shipments.
When you need to get places more quickly, you’ll enjoy both direct passenger and air freight services from nearby Joplin Regional Airport (KJLN) — and easy connections with the nation and world from Kansas City and Tulsa’s international airports!
