Presently, there are only seven mega-size rail systems in the United States, three of which serve Meridian, making it an important junction on one of the nations four major transcontinental routes.

The recent creation of a nationally prominent high-speed freight line between Meridian and Shreveport, the Meridian Speedway, has allowed the Union Pacific, Kansas City Southern, and Norfolk Southern railroads to offer the shortest rail route across the continent for Asia-US-Europe transportation.
