Two major installations drive auto shipping deliveries to the Russellville, Arkansas area – Arkansas Tech University and Arkansas Nuclear One. While Arkansas Tech University is a popular college for students from around the country (resulting in some long-distance domestic auto shipments), many auto shipping services are for technicians employed at Arkansas Nuclear One, the states sole nuclear power facility. Russellville is also home to a variety of manufacturing facilities that employ a large percentage of the local area. Ten divisions of Fortune 500 companies reside in Russellville, including Tyson Foods, Inc. In total, about 8,300 residents are employed by the 48 manufacturing facilities in the nearby area.
While Russellville is geographically close to major Metropolitan areas like Little Rock, it is relatively small in comparison with only about 28,000 residents. Russellville is the most prominent city in the Russellville Micropolitan Statistical Area. Most traffic arriving in Russellville arrives via Interstate 40, which connects the city with Little Rock to the east. I-40 also runs west to connect with cities like Fort Smith, Tulsa, and Oklahoma City. Weather is seldom an issue for auto shippers traveling through the area, especially during dry months when the city can go long periods without significant precipitation.
