Serving the Region
St. Louis Regional Freightway
BSD’s newest business enterprise, the St. Louis Regional Freightway, was created as a public-private partnership to optimize the region’s freight transportation network. The goal is to produce results that strengthen the St. Louis region by increasing job growth and improving the local economy. The cooperative effort will determine how the region manages the movement of freight on the roads, rails, rivers, airports, and pipelines. Public and private partnerships will be developed in order to create the foundation for planning, marketing, and advocacy of the bi-state region as a national freight hub.
It is estimated the freight district partnership will support 230,000 jobs.
