An alliance of Kansas City Southern and I&M Rail Link and Canadian National Railroads forms the NAFTA Railway, extending from Canada to Mexico. The NAFTA Railway traverses Mississippi and allows a shipper to secure one rate and access a single rail network to move shipments throughout North America. Kansas City Southern and Canadian National Railways maintain two mainlines and yards with 10 minutes of Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport, both with modern full service intermodal facilities.
The airport is also located 35 miles (56 kilometers) from the Port of Vicksburg, Mississippi. Over 50 trucking companies are located in Jackson, providing both truck load and less than truck load service throughout North America.
The Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport currently offers service from four integrated cargo carriers:
- UPS Supply Chain Solutions
- Bestway Delivery Services, Inc.
- Integrated Airline Services, Inc.
- United Parcel Service

In addition to these carriers and transportation links, the Airport and the State of Mississippi can provide marketing and promotional support for new service and can assist with the development of warehouse and other facilities. The State of Mississippi supports importing and exporting industries with programs and services to meet the special needs of international companies. Mississippi businesses in need of working capital and equipment can turn to the State for low interest loans.
