BMW in Greer has access to Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, Norfolk Southern railroad, South Carolina Inland Port and Interstate 85. Taking the similar approach with Volvo, the site needs to have access to a major airport, a major railroad, a connection to a port and a major highway.

Tried searching for it but couldn't find it. How do you find it by search? Don't know if you can post the direct link on here or not.

Volvo locating a plant in Florence would boost the city and the Pee Dee region in many ways.
