Why Alabama?

Logistics & Infrastructure

There’s a lot that goes into being Made In Alabama—and even more that comes out of it. Supplies, materials, personnel, and products make their way to and from Alabama every day by land, sea, and air; connecting our industries seamlessly to the rest of the nation and the globe.

Alabama’s prime location in the South and on the Gulf Coast grants it nearly unlimited access to the national and international markets. At the center of the fastest growing region within the U.S., Alabama sits within a one day drive to all of the South and its nearly 150 million residents.

Availability at this scale has paved the way to some pretty astounding international trade achievements. Alabama is the home to over 425 foreign-based companies from more than 30 nations and exported goods to 188 countries in 2015 — racking up $19.58 billon in exports despite an unsteady global market.
