Truck Fleet Hubs

Goals

To identify truck fleet hubs, such as manufacturing hubs, warehousing hubs, and/or distribution centers in US states.

Early Findings

  • "New regional distribution hubs are emerging as a consequence of the rapid development of new warehousing space nationwide. "
  • "These emerging geographical hubs are located within a few hours of major population centers, have access to significant transportation infrastructures like ports, 28 airports, interstates, and rail, and have a sufficient supply of developable land to support large-scale distribution facilities."
  • "Indianapolis and Cincinnati are within 250 miles of a significant portion of the U.S. population and have seen millions of square feet of industrial warehouse space become occupied over the last five years."

Summary

  • For the initial hour, we tried identifying as much of the requested information as possible. We were able to identify some insights on emerging distribution centers for trucking and more general information on the best distribution centers and logistics cities in the US. Truck fleets likely go to these hubs, however, statistics to support this (relevant to trucking or the overall fleet industry) did not appear available. Manufacturing hubs for truck fleets in US states also did not appear available in this search.
  • In the course of our research, we came across some insights on the overall US warehouse and storage industry as well as the top 10 cities in the US for shipping, which might also be of interest.
