Transportation + Distribution
The Montana Connections Business Development Park is located at the intersections of I-15 and I-90 and the BNSF and Union Pacific Class I Railways. Desirable destinations in North America are only a day away by truck or rail. Shipments reach out from this hub for business, industry and manufacturing to major market centers such as Calgary, Salt Lake City, Spokane, Seattle, Las Vegas, San Diego and Minneapolis and numerous other locations are also a straight shot on the two freeway corridors that stretch north, south, east and west. From this centralized location, the entire world is accessed through efficient delivery to international ports.
This is the only location in Montana where two highways intersect allowing for easy distribution both east–west and north-south. The Port of Montana, a full service transloading facility, is located within the boundaries of Montana Connections. The Port of Montana offers storage services, certified scales, distribution services, railcar and truck transload services, inventory management and control, and much more. The Montana Connections Business Development Park is also the home of FedEx Freight and Old Dominion Freight. Both nationally recognized freight companies that have found why doing business here makes great sense.
The only place in Montana where two Class I railroads are located. Both the Union Pacific and the Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railroads serve the Port of Montana. Again, allowing for easy distribution both east-west and north-south. They specialize in handling a variety of rail equipment such as boxcars, bulkhead flats, flatcars, open gondola, covered gondola, centerbeam, container, hopper car, center drops, reefer, and tank cars.
