Syracuse is known to many as the “Heart of New York,” a name that exemplifies not just this city’s centralized location in Onondaga County, but also its foundational economic role. The town rose to prominence as a hub for the Erie Canal, connecting the main canal to its branches; it played a similarly central role for railway transit and, later, for transit along interstate highways. As a result, Syracuse is the anchor for some of the most important transit routes between New York, New England, and the Midwest. It has also become a center of pharmaceutical production, given the proximity of a key Bristol Myers Squibb facility; of energy production, given its National Grid facilities; and of manufacturing, given the presence of Lockheed Martin, Carrier, and other key producers. All told, Syracuse is nothing if not an economic powerhouse.

The challenge with supplying a trade city is that all its major infrastructure tends to be in use, pretty much all the time. Syracuse a a major stopover in trade routes linking together the Midwest, New York, and New England. Accordingly, countless trucks, vans, and trailers are on its roads every day, whether to supply the city, to stop over on the way to other destinations, or even simply to drive through.
With such a vast collection of vehicles on a limited number of roads, it’s virtually inevitable that traffic jams will occur, and often with little or no warning.
As a result, Syracuse’s suppliers frequently find their routes into the city blocked off, and have to scramble to complete deliveries they expected to go off without a hitch. The longer they scramble, the more you have to wait for supplies that may be essential to your operations.
