Reno, Nevada is the best location for West Coast distribution

Northern Nevada is the perfect distribution hub for your business

Exciting things are happening in the state of Nevada. Long known for its business-friendly climate, Nevada continues to welcome companies such as Tesla, Apple, Amazon, Walmart, Google, Switch, and Blockchains, LLC—who are leading the way in the state’s unprecedented growth.


Companies and West Coast distribution centers located in Nevada enjoy no corporate income tax, no personal income tax or inventory tax. Nevada is also free of franchise, non-unitary state, inheritance, estate and intangible taxes. Utility costs are also significantly lower than neighboring California, making this the perfect place to do business.


Thanks to Nevada’s mild and dry climate, products shipped in and out of the state are generally not subject to severe weather, meaning your products can last longer—both in cartons and on the shelf.
