Why do we call
Exciting things are happening in our home state of Nevada. Long known for its business-friendly climate, Nevada continues to offer top incentives for companies such as Tesla, Apple and Switch, who are leading the way in our state’s unprecedented growth.
Companies located in Nevada enjoy no corporate income tax, no personal income tax or inventory tax. Nevada is also free of franchise, non-unitary state, inheritance, estate and intangible taxes. Utility costs are also significantly lower than neighboring California, making this the perfect place to do business.
Thanks to Nevada’s mild and dry climate, products shipped in and out of the state are generally not subject to severe weather, meaning your products can last longer—both in cartons and on the shelf.
Our higher education is leading
to a growing workforce
The University of Nevada, Reno is a rapidly growing Tier 1 University right in our own back yard and Truckee Meadows Community College boasts more 30,000 active students—and both contribute to a highly-educated and expanding work force in Northern Nevada.
One of the reasons Nevada is known as the “Hub of the West” is because we offer overnight delivery to nearly every major western U.S. city. Reno/Sparks is the center of an extensive transportation network on two major highway corridors: Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway 395, reaching over 53 million people.
ITS is near the Reno/Tahoe International Airport, a major air hub for Western Nevada and Eastern California, and just four hours from the international and domestic shipping hub of San Francisco. Our region is served by Union Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads, each with intermodal yards and container freight facilities in the area. Northern Nevada is home to more than sixty-five LTL, truckload and small package carriers. The LTL and small parcel carriers are able to load direct schedules to all major metropolitan areas.
