North Mississippi has the infrastructure needed to make your business a success. Our region offers access points to global markets with regional and international airports, interstate and four-lane state highway systems, rail access to all major rail lines and port access points along the Tenn-Tom Waterway.
Designated a national marine highway, the Tenn-Tom runs north-south through the eastern portion of the NMIDA region. It connects the Tombigbee and Tennessee Rivers, creating a water transportation route that serves 23 southern and mid-western states from the Gulf of Mexico (Port of Mobile) northward. Six public ports are located in the NMIDA region.
Four-lane highways MS-45 and MS-82 provide access to all points in the region, soon to be enhanced by completion of the new Interstate 22 from Memphis to Birmingham.
Rail transportation is provided by the Canadian National/Illinois Central, Kansas City Southern, Norfolk Southern, and Burlington Northern lines.
Air travel is easy from the Golden Triangle Regional Airport (GTR), Tupelo Regional Airport (TUP), the Jackson-Evers International Airport (JAN), or the Memphis International Airport (MEM).
