DFW - Top inland ports, including DFW, are expanding at nearly twice the national pace.

The rapid growth of e-commerce has fueled development of warehouses and distribution centers.

Dallas-Fort Worth is growing at a rate of 3.6 percent.

By far the leading catalyst for the growth of inland ports is e-commerce, which has flooded U.S. seaports with an unprecedented volume of foreign cargo destined for markets across the U.S. 

That cargo is routed from seaports to nearby inland ports, which are major transportation hubs where cargo is handled, warehoused and broken into smaller batches for further distribution to consumers within that region.

Inland ports are defined as having a Class I rail connection to a major seaport and also having access to significant transportation infrastructure, be it rail, highway, waterway or a combination of the three.
