About the Utah Inland Port

The proposed Utah Inland Port is a logistics and distribution hub that would create a shipping expressway between West Coast ports and the Intermountain West, connecting Utah businesses to global markets. The port will benefit our local economy, providing quality jobs and increased prosperity for Utah’s growing population.

The proposed site for the Utah Inland Port, the Northwest Quadrant of Salt Lake County, is positioned at the intersection of two interstate freeways, major national railways, and an international airport — and that means a high demand for expanding warehouses, distribution, and manufacturing needs. Development in the area has already begun, and the Utah Inland Port provides an opportunity to harness the growth to maximize its economic benefits to Utahns while maintaining a high quality of life throughout the area.

The Utah Inland Port is a landmark opportunity for Utah that will require collaboration and foresight to maximize the benefits and address any challenges. Please attend the public forums to provide your input on how you think the port should be developed. The Port Authority wants to ensure the port benefits our prosperity and quality of life — both now and in the future.
