“As a state, Nebraska is a great place to start a business primarily due to the quality of people and its location. The resources that Nebraska offers are very competitive cost-wise with other states in the same region. Nebraska is blessed with many transportation services such as truckload, less-than-truckload, flatbed, bulk, rail, overseas, and more.
