An IDEAL Business Location

Few locations on the East Coast offer more business and living advantages or a more central location than Greater Reading. Philadelphia is just 50 miles away. New York and Washington D.C. are just over 100 miles (160 km). Boston, Richmond and Toronto are all within overnight driving distance. We have an ideal and cost-effective location for logistics in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Greater Reading is intersected by several four-lane highways including two interstate highway systems: I-76/I-176 and I-78. More than a dozen motor carriers offer shippers a variety of choices for their trucking needs. Norfolk Southern Railroad provides access for bulk shipments into and out of the region through an intermodal network.
