New York is a premier location for building and locating distribution centers

New York State’s unparalleled market proximity, plus a host of resources and incentives available to distribution centers give businesses a distinct edge over the competition. Speed, flexibility and a strategic location that offers easy access to East Coast markets are key ingredients New York offers to product distributors. With a large, skilled labor pool, a vast network of railways, highways and ports — and the most ambitious infrastructure and development program in state history — the distribution industry finds an efficient and cost-effective home here. New York also delivers in working with community partners to help companies find distribution center locations.
