Kansas City has always benefitted from its location. At its beginning in the mid-1800s, the region’s early trading posts resided at the natural starting point for the three main trails settlers took heading west. When the railroads were built, KansasCity was situated where the intercontinental railroad first spanned theMissouri River, which led to warehouses and factories being built nearby, and soon a bustling city was born. The industrial revolution and the city’s location in the middle of the nation’s agricultural heartland led to KansasCity becoming a major center for food processing and transportation, further expanding its population and borders. Today, Kansas City still benefits from its centrality, holding the status of second largest rail hub and third largest trucking hub in the nation. The Port of Kansas City on the Missouri River allows for convenient river barge shipping to St. Louis, New Orleans, Chicago, and Minneapolis, as well as many connections to major cities all over the easternUnited States. As the country has shifted toward a more information-based economy, Kansas City has diversified, moving into the fields of technology and healthcare in addition to manufacturing and logistics. Yet its strength, particularly in regards to shipping and transportation, still resides in its location, both in its centrality and in the vast infrastructure that has been laced through the region to support it.
