Logistics & Distribution

Topeka and Shawnee County are nestled in the middle of the U.S. with connectivity to five major highways allowing quick access to Interstates 70 and 335. Topeka is home to one of the longest air runways in the U.S. At 12,800 feet long, Forbes Field Air Logistics Facility, located in the South Topeka Economic Growth Corridor, is one of the top six longest runways in the nation that is still under capacity.

Connected by Highway 75 and a BNSF Railway line and close to Interstate 335 and Interstate 70, the three sites represent the industrial infrastructure of future economic growth in Shawnee County. Topeka’s strengths as a logistics and distribution hub have already proven to be invaluable to companies such as Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Smuckers, Goodyear, Frito Lay and PTMW, who all have distribution centers in the community.
