Hancock County’s transportation connections put you even closer to our ever-shrinking world. Our location in the center of one of the nation’s most central states gives your business fast highway access to two-thirds of the nation. Our county is crisscrossed by high-quality roads that provide fast access to the region and beyond. Interstate 70 puts local businesses just minutes from the I-465 loop around Indianapolis with connections to I-65, I-69, and I-74. U.S. Highways 36, 40, and 52, and Indiana State Road 9 also cross Hancock County.
We’re home to Indianapolis Regional Airport (KMQJ), with 6,001 and 3,901-foot runways (and an instrument approach). Indy Jet provides FBO services including jet fuel, heated hangars, de-icing, car rental, and courtesy transportation to local destinations. Just 30 miles to our west is Indianapolis International Airport (KIND), a major cargo facility that’s home to the world’s second-largest FedEx operation. All-weather operations and runways as long as 11,200 feet explain why the airport handles more than two billion pounds of cargo annually.
We have access to other models of transportation, too. Two CSX mainlines pass through Hancock County, and intermodal terminals are as close as Senate Avenue in Indianapolis (25 minutes away) and Avon Yard, just west of the city (35 minutes away). We’re within a half-day’s drive of Indiana’s three modern ports, located at Burns Harbor on Lake Michigan, and at Jeffersonville and Mount Vernon on the Ohio River.
Hancock County can offer Free Trade Zone sites anywhere in the county.
