Manufacturing companies in search of development-ready sites with good transportation access and a fast speed-to-market should consider the Southeast Arkansas Intermodal Transportation Facility. This site is 354 acres right on Highway 278 W. The Arkansas Midland Railroad has a rail spur on the site - providing multiple ways to transport raw materials and products with ease. 

  • The site is bound by undeveloped property.
  • There are no major structures in the area.
  • The site is served by a 750,000 gallon water tank for potable water supply.
  • A well to serve greater demand can be installed to provide non-potable water supply. 

The site has utilities in place

  • C&L Electric Cooperative provides electricity
  • Centerpoint Energy provides natural gas
  • Monticello Municipal provides water and sewer
  • Community Communications provides fiber-optic
  • AT&T provides telecommunications

Arkansas Site with On-site Rail

Perhaps the greatest benefit of building at the Southeast Arkansas Intermodal Transportation Facility is the on-site rail spur serviced by Arkansas Midland Railroad. With the cost of gas skyrocketing, moving products by train offers companies an opportunity to reduce transportation costs, or at least have a second mode of transportation.

Abundant Workforce Training & Recruitment Opportunities 

The Southeast Arkansas Intermodal Transportation Facility is located in beautiful Monticello, Arkansas. The community is home to the University of Arkansas Monticello, providing workforce training opportunities and the ability to recruit recent graduates. In addition, the University of Arkansas at Monticello College of Technology-Crossett (UAM-CTC) and the University of Arkansas at Monticello College of Technology-McGehee are within 38 miles of the community, providing additional workforce training opportunities. This makes the Southeast AR Intermodal Transportation Facility an ideal location for growing manufacturing companies. 

About Monticello, Arkansas

In addition to being home to the University of Arkansas Monticello, the community has a local hospital - Drew Memorial Hospital. It’s possible to stay in Monticello your entire life because the community has everything a family would need. This includes outdoor recreation at stunning Lake Monticello - a 1,520-acre lake where trophy bass can be caught. On site are picnic areas, boat ramps, an on-site bow range, and a radio controlled airplane landing strip. The Monticello Sports Complex and Burlington Field provide additional outdoor recreation.

For those interested in cultural activities, the SEARK Concert Association provides programming that includes dance, drama and music and the Drew County Historical Museum hosts reenactments and educational programming.

As for cost of living, Monticello is 22.40% lower than the U.S. average - great news for manufacturing companies who need their employees to live comfortably close to the plant.
