The St. Louis Regional Freightway has released its overview of the Manufacturing and Logistics Industry in Monroe County, which was developed with support from Edie Koch, Executive Director of the Monroe County IL Economic Development Corporation.

Edie represents Monroe County on various Freightway committees providing infrastructure and industrial real estate recommendations for the county that are then promoted at a local and national level. The piece is the first in a series of profiles planned for the coming months to highlight each of the eight counties in the geographic area covered by the freight district. These include the City of St. Louis and the seven adjacent counties: Madison, St. Clair and Monroe in Illinois and St. Louis, St. Charles, Jefferson and Franklin in Missouri.

These profiles provide a snapshot of the key infrastructure investment and significant available development sites in each county and a closer look at why it should be on the radar screen for those in the manufacturing, logistics and distribution sectors who may be looking for a business site location and/or a community where their employees may want to live.
