Greater Oklahoma City is in the geographic center of North America equidistant from the east and west coasts and major trade partners of Canada and Mexico. The ten county region is at the crossroads of the U.S., sitting at the heart of three major national highways on the NAFTA corridor.
There's a reason Greater Oklahoma City is such a great place for business: Location. The ten county region is positioned within a day's drive of the rapidly-growing south-central region (OK, TX, AR, LA) projected to grow more than 44% during the next 25 years.
Among the top 52 cities in the country, Oklahoma City residents deal with the third-shortest commutes to and from work, according to the Census Bureau's most recent American Community Survey. OKC's drivers spend an average of 21.35 minutes behind the wheel while on their way to work, with only Rochester (20.37 minutes) and Buffalo -Niagara Falls (20.78 minutes) coming in ahead. Of cities of similar size, OKC easily beat out its peers, including Salt Lake City, Nashville, and Milwaukee. Shorter drive times indeed mean it's easier to get down to business in Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City's US Fleet Tracking will provide GPS support for the 2010 Super Bowl and Pro Bowl, 2010 Winter Olympics, and 2010 World Equestrian Games. US Fleet's real-time GPS tracking technology ensures that personnel and critical equipment are always located.
US Fleet's technology allows tracking to eight inches of a target's location at intervals of five to 10 seconds, making it a leader in the industry. The systems will be used to track AFC and NFC team buses at Sunday's Super Bowl, horses in this summer's Equestrian World Games, and Winter Olympians in this month's Vancouver Olympics.
US Fleet Tracking is in its fifth year of existence, but has grown rapidly. The 20-employee company has experienced 400 percent annual growth and is providing assistance for its fourth consecutive Super Bowl.
"The safety and security of athletes and personnel are our highest priority," said Jerry Hunter, US Fleet Tracking founder and chief executive officer. "
