Cortland County’s immediate access to major highways and proximity to major markets makes the county a great place for the distribution industry. Those features, along with the increased affordability of employee compensation, make the county an even better distribution hub.
Distributors wanting assurances about the security of their products will also take note of the county’s crime rates, which are lower than both the state and national averages.
