Hancock County is connected to your world.

Hancock County, Indiana’s transportation connections ensure you have fast access to everywhere your company needs to be. Our location in the center of one of the nation’s most central states puts you within a quick drive of two-thirds of the nation — and within a day’s truck drive of more than 148 million people. Interstate 70 bisects Hancock County, putting you within minutes of Interstates 65, 69, and 74, the Indianapolis 465 loop, and less than two hours from I-75 and its access to the nation’s manufacturing belt. U.S. Highways 36, 40, and 52, and Indiana State Road 9 also pass through.

We’re less than an hour from award-winning Indianapolis International Airport, handling two billion pounds of cargo each year, thanks to all-weather operations and 11,000-foot runways. It’s home to the world’s second-largest FedEx hub. We’re also less than three hours from the UPS hub in Louisville. That means fast access for both domestic and international air cargo. Need to move even faster by air? Indianapolis Regional Airport (KMQJ) is right here, with runways over 6,000 feet long, an ILS approach, and an FBO offering support for jet operation, deicing, and heated hangar space. In addition, we can create Free Trade Zone sites anywhere within Hancock County.

We also provide convenient access to other models of transportation. Two CSX mainlines pass through Hancock County, and intermodal terminals are as close as Senate Avenue in Indianapolis (25 minutes away) and Avon Yard, just west of the city (35 minutes away). We’re within a half-day’s drive of Indiana’s three modern ports, located at Burns Harbor on Lake Michigan, and at Jeffersonville and Mount Vernon on the Ohio River.
