Target announced today that it intends to build a distribution facility in the heart of Orange County, New York. This development is expected to bring roughly 2,000 jobs to the Orange County area. The site for the facility is in Newburgh, NY, adjacent to Norfolk Southern’s Northern Tier, and new Amazon distribution facility. Target will have a dedicated trailer train on that line to the facility daily, NS 24W. Target is excited about this, and expects it to pay off long term, they said in a email earlier today. The facility is expected to be open in March of 2018.
