The integrated network of Wisconsin’s multimodal transportation system functions
as a platform for the entire state economy.
A pillar of the Upper Midwest, Wisconsin’s central location provides access to markets throughout the country. And as the only state bordered by two Great Lakes and the Mississippi River, our port system puts businesses within reach of markets around the world.
People and businesses have been coming to Wisconsin for generations because of the high quality of life and a very low risk of natural disasters—decreasing the risk of downtime and reduced productivity for a business. And when combined with quality public schools; access to arts, leisure and outdoor recreation; and one of the lowest cost of living indices in the country, you’ll often find our state at the top of lists highlighting the best places to live, work, play and raise a family.
