The Dallas Logistics Hub is the largest new logistics park under development in North America, with 6,000 acres master-planned for the potential development of 60 million square feet of 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/Trans-Texas Corridor) and Lancaster 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 and will serve as a major “inland port” bringing 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.
