Dumas is located along Highways 87 and 287 of the Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor, a multimodal transportation corridor that includes multilane divided highways. This highway system facilitates efficient transportation of goods and services from Mexico, through West Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, and into Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
Just south of Dumas sits the east-west conduit, Interstate 40. This ease of access is perfect for businesses that require a centrally located distribution hub. For those needing to distribute larger loads or oversized equipment, Dumas is located along the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF) line and the Texas Northwest short line—one of the top short lines for the BNSF.
To increase efficiency and reduce additional distribution expenses, there are available business sites with rail access, and the short line is primed to accept additional traffic. Because of its railroad-highway combination, Dumas works well for companies in need of trans-load facilities.
