Owensboro Noticed For Productivity

Owensboro officials have something to brag about. The city has been declared the most productive and profitable metropolitan area in the nation and there’s only a small asterisk.

This was according to the October issue of Expansion Management Magazine, which ranked the top 25 communities nationally in terms of productivity in transportation, warehousing and distribution sector.

Owensboro, Ky., tops the nation with an average of just over $269,000 in revenue per employee. Corpus Christi, Texas was ranked second and Louisville, Ky., 17th.
