St. Landry Parish has assets for the attraction of ware-house - distribution centers. Its location to Interstate - 10 and Interstate - 49 along with U.S. Highways 190 and 167, provide north-south and east - west connectivity to north Louisiana and Texas and on into numerous Southern states.
The Wal-Mart Distribution Center in St. Landry Parish provides an opportunity to feed products into Wal-Mart's distribution network, which is a location advantage for warehousing by Wal-Mart national and regional vendors. It is also an advantage for manufacturers that are Wal-Mart vendors.
In addition, the two general airports and a shallow port with barge and deck access on the Atchafalaya River make the parish attractive for this industry.
