San Antonio sits at the geographic center of North America, providing quick access to Mexico, Canada, South America, Atlantic and Pacific ports.

For product manufacturers, the city’s infrastructure allows quick movement of goods east, west, north, and south. The city lies at the crossroads of 3 major interstates and 2 Class-I rail lines, providing direct access to:

  • Port of Houston
  • Port Corpus Christi
  • Port of Long Beach
  • Port of Los Angeles
  • Puerto Lázaro Cárdenas, México.

For service providers, the city’s Central Time Zone allows local operations to easily service all of the Americas from one location, whether Alaska in the west or São Paulo, Brazil in the east.

When a quick business trip is needed, San Antonio International Airport offers direct flights to 34 destinations in the U.S. and México.  This allows business travelers to fly directly in and out of the continent’s major business centers.  You can be in San Francisco or New York in just over 3 hours and Mexico City in just 2hours, leaving you more time to grow your business.
