"South Dakota’s Port of Entry is critical to the growth of our business. It has cut our lead-time in half. We like that we can clear customs locally, while creating more economic prosperity. We know whom we will be dealing with and we like the quality of people. We hold each other accountable."

LodgeNet Entertainment – Jeff Stahl

Jeff Stahl brings electronic goods and components from the Far East through the Sioux Falls port. "It's been an excellent situation for us,'' he says. "It gives me a little bit more control.''
Stahl not only knows when his shipments arrive, he knows quickly if there are problems and can be on hand to fix them immediately. Ports in Minneapolis, Chicago and Long Beach are busier and slower, he says. When it comes to manufacturing, even a two-day delay in shipments can make a huge difference.
