Transportation and Logistics
Buffalo Niagara’s location on the Canadian-American border, within 500 miles of 40% of the continental North American population, gives the region significant international trade and commerce advantages. As the American industrial sector looks to modernize and innovate, Western New York’s multi-modal transportation network will be critical to international supply chains and the competitiveness of local companies.
