Southern Virginia keeps businesses connected through a modern network of well-maintained roadways, rail lines and airports.

The area is also strategically located near the Port of Virginia—making it an affordable, accessible gateway to international goods and markets.

Air Travel

The Southern Virginia region boasts a variety of airports facilities with direct flights to major cities in the US and Canada.

Three International Airports
Richmond (RIC), Piedmont Triad (GSO) and Raleigh-Durham (RDU)
Two Regional Airports
Lynchburg (LYN) and Roanoke (ROA)
And many general aviation airports with 3,500 to 6,000 ft. runways


Major markets such as Washington D.C., New York City and Atlanta are all within a day’s drive. There are five U.S. highways in the region, offering well-maintained roads and accessibility to major markets and a nearby labor pool. Several of these roads are presently being expanded and widened—in particular U.S. 460— which will improve passenger and freight transit to the Hampton Roads area and multi-modal services into and out of the Port of Virginia.

Rail and Sea Transport

If you’re seeking options for importing raw materials or exporting finished goods, the Port of Virginia and Port of Richmond also serve the region.  In addition, rail service is available through both Norfolk-Southern Rail Company and CSX Transportation.
