Companies in Greater Plattsburgh, NY have access to major markets in the U.S, Canada and around the globe. Plus, we boast three large, deep water ports and quick access to some of the largest metropolitan areas in North America.

The Port of Montreal (and nearby Sorel/Tracy), the Port of New York and the port of Albany are world-class deep-water seaports, each of which has the capacity to handle loading and off-loading of large pieces of containerized parts.

The Ports of Montreal and Sorel/Tracy are located within 60 miles of Plattsburgh. The Ports of Albany and New York provide alternate seaports within 150 and 300 miles, respectively.
