With borders on five states, Nevada provides efficient transportation links to major western markets.  Las Vegas is at the hub of an extensive transportation network on three major highway corridors: Interstate 15, U.S. Highway 95 and U.S. Highway 93.  Clark County's strategic location provides next-day freight service to 80% of the eleven state western region.  Nearly every western city is within 2nd day delivery time, which translates into a market totaling more than 50 million people.

More than 50 motor carriers, including several specialized carriers, serve Southern Nevada.  The area provides a number of warehousing and manufacturing-related support services including specialized contract haulers, full-service public warehousing, U.S. customs service, foreign trade zone and subzone accommodations, assembly and packaging support.

McCarran International Airport is located within the Las Vegas valley.  Each day the airport handles approximately 101,000 arriving/departing passengers, 611,000 pounds of arriving/departing cargo, 1,400 aircraft operations and 3,300 international passengers making it the 7th busiest airport in North America.
