Oswego County Ranked in Top 10 for Logistics by National Publication
Business Facilities magazine recently ranked Oswego County tenth in the top 10 logistics leaders across the U.S. in their 12th Annual Rankings Report. The rankings were based on "the locations which have tremendous assets serving all modes of transportation: air, land, water and rail."
Business Facilities is a national site selection magazine which provides monthly news and resource information for more than 40,000 corporate executives responsible for the expansion or relocation of their companies. Business Facilities is based in Tinton Falls, NJ.
"To be included in this group of the highest caliber locations for logistics in the country is an honor and truly speaks to the viability of Oswego County as an exceptional place to locate a business," said L. Michael Treadwell, executive director of Operation Oswego County. "This recognition would not have been possible without the vast network of transportation and logistic capabilities that we have in Oswego County and Central New York. Very few locations can boast of having a deep water port, multiple interstate highways, an excellent U.S. state and county highway system, a county airport and a nearby international airport, a state canal system and rail service. Also, Oswego County is strategically positioned to be a hub for the Northeast U.S. and Canada from Toronto to Montreal."
Operation Oswego County continues to promote the virtues of our location and transportation assets in Business Facilities and other publications focused on economic development and site selection.
