The Raritan Logistics Center is a true “freight village” providing companies both large and small access to complete logistical services in a strategic and secure location. The Raritan Logistics Center combines multimodal transportation (rail, highway, and marine), with industry-leading transloading, warehousing, and packaging services. Its central location in the towns of Edison and Woodbridge, New Jersey, provides quick and easy access to major highways, rail lines, and port facilities and supports the efficient flow of shipments to, from, or through the Northeastern United States.

The Raritan Logistics Center encompasses the Raritan Center Business Park and Heller Industrial Park - over 3,050 acres total. Combined, these parks offer over 20 million square feet of warehouse, light manufacturing and office space, extensive rail infrastructure operated by the Raritan Central Railway, and a private barge terminal.

The combination of specialized logistics services providers, extensive logistics-oriented infrastructure, and its own “in house” service-focused short line railroad strategically-located within the largest consuming market in the US is what sets the Raritan Logistics Center apart from other facilities. Shippers can enjoy turnkey services from a single-source provider or employ multiple companies to better suit their individual needs. In addition, the Raritan Central Railway will work with you to help identify the 3PL partner and space best-suited to your needs.
