As the third largest airport in the State of Wisconsin, Austin Straubel International Airport operates a 24-hour, 365-day a year operation. As such, the Airport is a key ingredient to northeastern Wisconsin’s economic growth and quality of life. The Airport provides job opportunities for over 2,000 people in northeast Wisconsin and contributes over $120 million into the region’s economy. The Airport is strictly a self-funded enterprise fund with a $12.1 million operating budget that has no impact on the tax levy of Brown County.

The Port of Green Bay gives Green Bay a distinct advantage when competing for businesses that import raw materials or export large products to national and international markets.

Because of its strategic location as the westernmost port of Lake Michigan, Green Bay offers the shortest, most direct route for shipments between the Midwest and the world. Major railroads link the port with America’s heartland. A core of nationally-known truck lines provides overnight delivery within a 400-mile radius.

The port is also a recognized Free Trade Zone port.
