Industries > Distribution & Logistics
This sector has grown increasingly vital to large population centers in the Northeastern United States. Our region is blessed with one of the largest ocean freight ports in North America, legions of trucking and warehousing assets, many of the busiest airports, an impressive railroad infrastructure, and a population of 58 million within a 250-mile radius of New York City.
Virtually all products are now shipped with time-critical sensitivity, tracked from point of departure to point of receipt, and subject to considerable labor, fuel, insurance and other operating costs. Yet an aging infrastructure, with the high costs of keeping and distributing goods in or near urban areas, make this a challenging sector to do business in. Safety, security, control, traceability and speed are all increasing concerns of major logistics and distribution businesses.
