Crossroads of Mid-America…..and Beyond

Throughout history Joliet has been a major commercial center providing goods to the region and nation.  From the early days of mule powered traffic on the Illinois & Michigan Canal, to the present convergence of intermodal transportation in North America’s largest inland port, Joliet has always evolved to meet the needs of commerce.  Our unrivalled asset has been easy access to transportation, markets and a strong labor force.      

The “Crossroads of Mid-America” motto is not just a catchy phrase.  It is why Amazon, IKEA, Home Depot, Mars, Whirlpool and many other major firms have decided to locate a logistics presence here.  It is why retail growth continues to fuel the local economy.  It is why residential development continues to add population to the City.  If you are interested in being part of our future, give us a call at (815) 724-3734, or via email sjones@jolietcity.org.
