NEW YORK DISTRIBUTION CENTER LOCATIONSNew York’s Dutchess County is within a 6-hour drive of 68 million U.S. and Canadian customers, 21% of American manufacturers and a $227B retail sales market via major transit hubs I-84, I-684 and I-87.

A regional logistics workforce of more than 3,000 strong, robust transportation infrastructure and valuable incentives…It’s no wonder why a major company like Gap chose Dutchess County for its largest U.S. distribution facility.
