Satellite Ports

Utah’s inland port is not a place – it’s a system – and a system for all of Utah. By mapping the infrastructure assets that are available and identifying how they connect to each other, UIPA can effectively connect Utah’s goods to the west coast and Midwest.

UIPA plans to develop a system of rural connections or “satellite ports” that serve as nodes in the Utah logistics system. As part of the network, UIPA has split Utah into four regions based on transportation corridors throughout the state. Utilizing strong infrastructure already in place, counties working together as a region have a greater ability to transport goods and boost their respective economies.

Ideal satellite port conditions include:

  1. Infrastructure
  2. Cargo capture/cargo flow
  3. Political will
  4. Educated workforce
  5. Emerging markets
