Global access makes your profits rise.

Global brands require world-class speed and access, and that’s one reason why leaders ranging from P&G and Unilever to Whirlpool and Ace Hardware have chosen Wilmer for major distribution centers. Occupying a pivotal position in the trinity--now acknowledged as America’s global logistics center--Wilmer provides low-cost leverage of this area’s significant multimodal transportation assets. All the right routes to markets, with powerful routes to profitability, thanks to lower costs and taxes, FTZ designation, Triple Freeport exemptions and a range of tax abatements.


In Wilmer, we’re moving industry forward with:




Highway:  Pan-American, pan-directional speed and access.

Located on I-45, just minutes from I-35 and I-20 and from a leading FedEx ground hub, Wilmer delivers 360° continental highway reach. Ship nonstop in every direction, on I-35 spanning the nation border to border from Mexico to Canada; on I-20, a major east-west artery; and on I-45, the north-south Texas super route that puts Houston just 3.5 hours away. U.S. Routes 175 and 67 also extend your reach, from west Texas to the Midwest.


And now, the completion of TxDOT’s Loop 9 promises to put Wilmer’s rapid access into hyper drive, by threading I-20, I-35 and I-45 with a single streamlined connector route.




Rail: Intermodal speed, continental scale.

As home to Union Pacific’s flagship 360-acre Intermodal Terminal, Wilmer puts your operation in prime position to leverage intermodal speed and flexibility to the fullest through America’s largest intermodal network. UP service stretches from coast to coast, serving more than 95% of major American markets. For trucks, 10-lane access through the terminal’s biometric secured automated gate system allows container processing in 30 to 90 seconds, shaving processing time by as much as 88% compared to the national average. UP also opens port access to West Coast ports as well as ports on the Western Gulf Coast with on-dock or near-dock service. With room for future expansion, the UP terminal is ready to deliver your goods today—and tomorrow.




Air: Domestic and global destinations.

Just 40 minutes from Wilmer, the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport connects your operation to destinations across the continent and across the globe. The world’s third busiest airport, the largest hub for American Airlines, DFW International spreads out more than 3 million square feet of cargo facilities. Just 30 minutes away, Dallas Love Field provides excellent general aviation services as well as focus city service from Virgin, Delta and Southwest.




Port: Maximizing opportunity with Panamax capability.

Deep-water global access is less than 3.5 hours away at the Port of Houston, the Gulf Coast’s largest container port, and the nation’s top port in foreign tonnage. This leading Panamax port is also easily accessible by UP rail.
