Things are moving in Memphis. To be precise, they’re moving in and out of Memphis, thanks to the trucking industry. And what better city for the job? The I-40 and I-55 interstates, extending east-west and north-south respectively, position the region at a key crossroads in the interstate highway system. Add to it the future I-69 linking Canada to Mexico and the city’s central location geographically, and your’e talking about a titan of distribution. As the logistics hub of America, our city is truly a power player in the industry.
