    We’re the Inland Empire, and you belong here.... 

    Why? Because, with a business climate that’s more than favorable, a workforce that’s highly skilled and highly educated, and a location thats about as close to perfect as they come, business works better here. Working at a regional scale in a coordinated approach allows our region to leverage our unique assets, sync up various efforts and shared goals, and maximize public and private talent to pursue and achieve a revitalized California. Where do you start? It's all right here:


  • San Bernardino Transportation and Infrastructure

    Locating in the County of San Bernardino puts you at the center of a vibrant economy on a local, national, and global level. The County’s infrastructure and transportation assets provide unrivaled access to lucrative consumer and business markets.

    The region is the nation's leading logistics, warehouse, and distribution market for a multitude of Fortune 500 firms thanks to a location of approximately 40 miles from the seaports of Los Angeles/Long Beach, which are known as the nation’s busiest in the world.

    The County and its businesses also benefit from three large airports with spare capacity and available space nearby (ONT, SBD, and VCV). LA/Ontario International Airport (ONT) is a medium-hub, full-service airport with commercial passenger service to major U.S. cities. ONT is also a major cargo airport and serves as the UPS West Coast air hub.

    The busiest rail corridors in the U.S. run through the County. Union Pacific and BNSF rail lines connect the ports of Los Angeles/ Long Beach with designation east of the Rockies providing even more reason that the County is a great location for U.S. regional distribution centers. 

    Businesses also benefits from a strategic network of roadways that provide important links to business centers across the country. The interstate highways (I-10, I-15, and I-40) are powerful corridors for business and good movement. This infrastructure asset makes the County a perfect location for a western U.S. regional distribution center for national brands.
