RidgePort Logistics Center
RidgePort Logistics Center is an 14 million square foot rail-served park situated on more than 1,500 acres and located less than 40 miles southwest of downtown Chicago. RidgePort is strategically positioned just three miles from the entrance to the BNSF Logistics Park-Chicago in Elwood, and the Union Pacific-Joliet Intermodal Terminal in Joliet. The two intermodals combined, make-up one of the largest container ports in the United States.
RidgePort provides unparalleled advantages to its clients through its superior location and amenities. It starts with the unique location: the BNSF mainline runs directly along the western boundary, and Interstate I-55 runs along east. The ease of access is second to none. There is a full four-way interchange at Lorenzo Road, and 2nd planned full four-way interchange at Illinois Route 129. RidgePort also lies in Wilmington, IL, making it part of the Will County inland port region, but just far enough outside the congestion and traffic of other nearby facilities. This will result in efficient operations, and convenient onsite services.
