Kentucky: Logistical Advantages

 
Whether you’re a prospect, an existing Kentucky business or you’re looking to start a business in Kentucky, it helps to hear what other business leaders are saying about doing business in the Bluegrass State, Think Kentucky!
 
Well known as the land of the thoroughbred and home to the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky is also frequently referred to as “Auto Alley” due to the presence of several vehicle manufacturing operations. In fact, Kentucky ranks 3rd among all states in vehicle production; 11.6 percent of all cars and trucks produced in the U.S. are made in Kentucky.
 
The Bluegrass State offers excellent logistical advantages due to its location. Kentucky’s borders are within 600 miles – about a day’s drive – of two-thirds of America’s population and Kentucky business is served by not one but two major shipping hubs, giving companies a leg up on getting products, papers and packages into the global stream of commerce.
 

Other Kentucky advantages include…

  • Low business costs
  • Available and productive workforce
  • An extensive telecommunications network
  • Nationally recognized workforce training programs
  • A major tax-modernization initiative, including a lower corporate income tax
  • Two major air cargo hubs
The U.S. Energy Information Administration has consistently listed Kentucky as having one of the lowest costs in the nation for industrial electricity. Factor in the unique advantage of being served by a locally owned and operated public power community. The benefit to business is reliable electric power supply at affordable rates with a voice in local policies.
