Distribution Center Pittsburgh

More good news for Southwestern PA:

A Dallas developer will build two large industrial buildings near Pittsburgh International Airport in hopes of making the region a distribution center. ...

... Airport Authority Executive Director Brad Penrod says while air cargo business has declined because of the economy, Pittsburgh is well-positioned to become a distribution point for the Midwest and Northeast.

The project represents a $90 million investment. I guess if there aren't enough people to ship, the airport might as well handle more stuff. Nice to see greater recognition of Pittsburgh's strategic location.
