Transportation & Infrastructure

Nevada’s borders with five western states combined with its air, ground and rail transportation network, provide a strategic advantage for businesses. For Southern Nevada, Clark County’s Las Vegas is at the hub of an extensive transportation network comprised of three current major highways: Interstate 15, U.S. Highway 95, and U.S. Highway 93 and one future planned highway, Interstate 11, to Phoenix, Arizona.

Clark County’s transportation network provides next-day freight service to 80 percent of the 11-state western region. Nearly every western city is within a two-day delivery time, meaning that shipments can quickly reach a market totaling more than 50 million people.

More than 50 motor carriers, including several specialized carriers, serve Southern Nevada. The area provides a number of warehousing and manufacturing-related support services including specialized contract haulers, full-service public warehousing, U.S. customs service, foreign trade zone and subzone accommodations, assembly and packaging support.
