Duluth-Superior’s location at the western most point of Lake Superior creates a multimodal transportation hub connecting truck routes, rail lines, aviation facilities and Great Lakes shipping routes.
The movement of freight is especially important to the economic vitality of the Duluth-Superior metropolitan area and greater region. Providing for an efficient transportation system reduces costs, increases productivity, and is a key site location factor for new businesses.
