(York) -- York County's prime location -- accessible to Interstate 83, I-81 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike -- has made it a magnet for large warehouses and distribution centers that ship everything from auto parts to the latest John Grisham novel to much of the East Coast.

The largest, ES3 in Conewago Township, is more than 1.7 million square feet, or the size of more than nine Walmart Supercenters. If you're a football fan, that's the equivalent of 29 NFL football fields.

Here's a list of the 10 largest warehouse/distribution centers in York County:
