Look for guys in the transport business
A mainstay of the Memphis economy is the transport business. This has been helped along by the central location of Memphis with respect to the rest of the mainland country. The city is intersected by several freight railroads and two Interstate highways, I-40 and I-55, while a third is third interstate, I-69, is under construction and a fourth, I-22, has recently been planned. Also the Memphis International Airport serves as the primary hub for FedEx Express shipping and became a secondary hub for Delta Air Lines after the latter merged with Northwest Airlines in 2008, thus making it the busiest cargo airport in the world. However much of the traditional importance of Memphis in the transport sector comes from its location on the Mississippi River where river barges unload cargo onto trucks and trains. Due to all these reasons, entrepreneurs and professionals in the shipping and transport business make up an important segment of the economy of Memphis, who are quite likely to be able to afford a comfortable dating experience and indulge their partners with the good things of life.
