The Tucson MSA serves a market of 45 million people within a 500-mile radius. In terms of geography, it lies within 415 miles of Southern California population centers and within 64 miles of the Mexican border, Arizona’s largest trade partner.  In 2023, Mexico surpassed China as the U.S. largest trading partner!

At the crossroads of I-10, I-8 and I-19 the interstate system provides timely access to suppliers and markets in other southern states. Four international ports of entry, Port of Tucson intermodal facility, Tucson International Airport and 11 general aviation airports across the region provide supplementary, highly-efficient methods for people and product movement.
