geographical hubs are located within a few hours of major population centers, have
access to significant transportation infrastructures like ports,
28 airports, interstates, and
rail, and have a sufficient supply of developable land to support large-scale distribution
"Indianapolis and Cincinnati are within 250 miles of a
significant portion of the U.S. population and have seen millions of square feet of
industrial warehouse space become occupied over the last five years."
Distribution centers "have always been in or near centralized population centers, as those are the areas that have the infrastructure and populations to support robust logistical operations. Cities that have access to large airports and seaports, as well as coastal cities in general, also tend to be ideal places for distribution centers."
Based on a ranked list, the best distribution centers in the US are:
For the initial hour, we tried identifying as much of the requested information as possible. We were able to identify some insights on emerging distribution centers for trucking and more general information on the best distribution centers and logistics cities in the US. Truck fleets likely go to these hubs, however, statistics to support this (relevant to trucking or the overall fleet industry) did not appear available. Manufacturing hubs for truck fleets in US states also did not appear available in this search.
In the course of our research, we came across some insights on the overall US warehouse and storage industry as well as the top 10 cities in the US for shipping, which might also be of interest.
