Omaha’s Economic Development as a Midwest Transportation Hub

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Omaha, Nebraska, is known as the Gate City of the West because of its early ties to the transcontinental railroad, the Union Pacific headquarters, and its prime location on the Missouri River. Moving goods from the central location of Omaha to fan out to the rest of the States is a positioning strategy for the Omaha Courier Service. As a transportation hub from the Midwest to the West, Omaha has remained faithful to its pioneer roots of accommodating the shipping needs of the entire United States through water, rail and air transport.

Omaha has an economy built on agriculture and trade. Early settlers required dry goods and food stuffs to last the winter in the northern plains. Indians and mountain men necessitated a place to sell their furs, pelts, and skins from the winter traps. Eastern mercantile stores demanded a steady supply of furs for the fashion industry. All of these needs converged in the western trading posts. Omaha was well positioned to become a commerce capital for trading raw materials to the East and homesteading supplies to the settlers moving to the West.
