  • Do I really want an Illinois-based distribution partner that’s trying to find a way to pay for higher taxes, likely by raising rates for its services? Or, would I rather have an Indiana-based distribution partner in a state with lower business taxes, lower cost of living, and a more cost-effective labor force?
  • Am I comfortable with congestion that can increase travel times by 60 percent during peak morning periods and often requires doubling travel time for one-time arrival? Or, is the idea of less traffic stress and easy access to Chicago, other Midwest markets, and the East Coast more appealing?
