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

Raymond Corporation

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 an additional $150 billion investment in 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.

Tractor Supply Co

New York State is home to distribution centers for major companies such as Ace Hardware, Best Buy, Tractor Supply, DICK’s Sporting Goods, The Gap, Home Depot, Kohl’s, Orgill, Pep Boys, Rite Aid, Staples, Target, Family Dollar and Wal-Mart, to name a few.
