Then there's the "Utah Inland Port." May have a chance - SLC area has more business than LV, and it's *close* to your minimum mileage (about 700) from Long Beach. [inlandportauthority.utah.gov]

Biggest problem I see with it is the tie to UP - their only rail supplier. Doesn't matter what else they do; UP is a bottleneck.

Of course, their desired location isn't far from the airport either, and it's just off a couple of Interstates. It's almost exactly the same driving distance from Oakland as from Long Beach (a few miles less from Long Beach).
