The Economic Development Corporation of Decatur & Macon County, together with Archer Daniels Midland (NYSE: ADM), were happy to announce during Fall 2013 the opening of the Midwest Inland Port in Decatur, Illinois.

The Midwest Inland Port provides a unique opportunity to ship inbound and outbound raw materials and products via rail containers anywhere in the United States and internationally in a more efficient and cost effective manner and serves as ground zero for logistics and distribution opportunities in Decatur and all of Central Illinois.

Served by Norfolk Southern, Canadian National and CSX railroads, the intermodal yard of the Midwest Inland Port provides lower cost and efficient shipping options to the east, west and gulf coast markets by bypassing the congestion of Chicago, St. Louis and Indianapolis.

As the domestic headquarters for ADM, Decatur is fortunate that its leading citizen is constantly improving its supply chain process and by creating this new facility, ADM has placed Decatur and all of Central Illinois at the forefront of the new 24 hour logistics and delivery models for raw material and product delivery.

At the September, 2013 opening, ADM Transportation President Scott Fredericksen said that "ADM's new intermodal terminal will offer businesses of every type the ability to access markets anywhere."
