REPUBLIC, MO - City leaders are excited to welcome a new development project that’ll have a worldwide impact. Convoy of Hope has chosen the City of Republic as the location for its new distribution center and warehouse. The faith-based organization, headquartered in Springfield, provides humanitarian relief and disaster response services across the globe. 


Construction has started on the project following months of planning and talks with city leaders. The new 230,000 square foot facility, being constructed on W. Carnahan Street near James River Freeway, will house food items and products needed for relief operations. It’ll also serve as the organization’s international transportation hub. Convoy of Hope says the new center will allow it to expand its outreach and serve more people than ever. 


David Cameron, City Administrator, stated, "The City of Republic is honored to partner with Convoy of Hope to move its warehousing operations to the community. We look forward to having this life-changing organization as part of our family."


Convoy of Hope is one of many significant developments currently taking shape in Republic. Over the last few months, city leaders have been in talks with several large-scale commercial developers interested in the Highway MM corridor. As a result, multiple proposed projects are now in the works. The city is looking forward to sharing more details very soon!
