Transportation & Logistics

Virginia was founded as a trading colony, and freight movement remains a critical part of the Commonwealth’s economy. The movement of freight–raw materials, intermediate products, and finished goods–currently supports over $350 billion of Virginia’s Gross State Product annually.

To accommodate the movement of freight, Virginia hosts one of the nation’s leading four major cargo airports, and some of the nation’s most heavily used truck corridors. Over the next two decades, the forecast is for significant growth in the demand for freight movement into, out of, within and through Virginia.

Expanding on the Air Cargo subsector discussed above, Loudoun is enhancing our connection to the Port of Virginia and Port of Norfolk (maritime), the Inland Port (freight rail) and the various freight forwarding and trucking initiatives.

With Dulles International Airport and Air Cargo as the center of our focus, we are attracting businesses that understand Loudoun is connected to everything with logistics at the right place, right time and right people.

Location Advantages:

  • Dulles International Airport for air cargo
  • Major improvement to road networks supporting freight transport
  • Increasing connectivity to maritime and rail nodes
