Transportation, Distribution & Logistics
As the third largest city in the United States, Chicago is a major transportation hub for the Midwest. It is served by two major airports and is the main freight rail hub of North America. Approximately 25 percent of all freight trains and 50 percent of all intermodal trains in the U.S. pass through metropolitan Chicago, which serves as the continent’s main interchange point between western and eastern railroads. It’s no surprise then that the Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics (TDL) industry is one of the City’s high-demand, high-growth sectors. TDL is an art as much as it is a science. From the everyday like transporting food from a farm to your dinner table, to international travel through the region’s airport hubs, TDL helps move people, products, and things across the world. With competitive wages, and on-the-job training opportunities, you can begin to help the world move its good and services today.
