The Dallas Logistics Hub is the largest new logistics park in North America with 6,000 acres master-planned for up to 60 million square feet of vertical space for distribution, manufacturing, office and retail uses. This premiere logistics facility is adjacent to Union Pacific’s Southern Dallas Intermodal Terminal, a potential BNSF intermodal facility, four major highway connectors (I-20, I-45, I-35, Loop 9) and the Lancaster Municipal Airport, which is in the master-planning stages to facilitate air-cargo distribution. The Dallas Hub, which spans across the communities of Dallas, Lancaster, Wilmer and Hutchins, is a key component of the NAFTA infrastructure. It will serve as a key “inland port” receiving products from the Ports of L.A./Long Beach and Houston, as well as the western deep water ports in Mexico for regional and national distribution.
