Transportation, Distribution and Logistics

Part of the Greater Chicago region, Kankakee County benefits from its strategic positioning within North America's transportation hub for air, rail and shipping, both interstate passenger and freight.

The Chicago Southland, in particular, is seeing the continued emergence of large inland ports for intermodal transfer and logistics, as well as a population growth projection of 175% and an employment growth projection of 225% over the next 20 years.

Opportunity sites with a strong transportation/distribution advantage within Kankakee County include the I-57 Exit 319 Bourbonnais Parkway Industrial TIF development area, the I-57 Exit 308/Greater Kankakee Airport commercial/industrial development area and I-57 Exit 312 commercial/industrial redevelopment area.

Kankakee County's existing Transportation, Distribution and Logistics sector continues to be strong. Leading local representatives of this sector include:

  • Baker & Taylor
  • K-Mart Distribution Center
  • Sears Logistics Services
  • Space Center Distribution
  • Hoekstra Transportation
  • A.N. Webber
