Submit Your Site

Over the past 50 years, Global Location Strategies (GLS) has evaluated thousands of sites for projects ranging from distribution centers to heavy industrial chemical complexes. 

As part of our commitment to continuously improve the site selection process, GLS built an extensive internal site database that compiles information for all sites we have evaluated over the past decade (and continue to add) into our GIS platform. This GIS embedded database allows site information, infrastructure, development impediments, and more to be reviewed in a single platform. This efficiency has proven invaluable to accelerating the site selection process for our clients by helping them understand the likely site opportunities within their search area of interest. We also use the site database to compare project site submissions for new projects to ensure that site options are not overlooked.

Submitting Your Sites

We are inviting communities to submit their qualifying sites to our internal site database, which will keep them top-of-mind in our site selection efforts. There is no cost to submit your site and you can submit as many sites as you would like. This site database is not public-facing.

Each site must meet the following criteria:

  • Currently marketed
  • 50 acres or more
  • Targeted for industrial development

We ask that state, regional, and utility-based economic development groups coordinate with the local economic development groups to avoid duplicate submissions.

To receive your invitation to submit your site(s) for our database, please complete the form found on our Site Submission Request page (click here). Your unique submission link and instructions will then be emailed to you. We ask that you review the instructions below before beginning the submission process.
