I think you can get usb cables with repeaters in them to extend the range. Otherwise your looking at bluetooth or wifi

Some of the usb over ethernet don't work with the plc's I use so it depends on what you are trying to run I guess

They make wireless USB adapters, but you'll need better antennas to get the range you need.

That plus a wireless point to point link could work. It however demands a PC running their special software, so you couldn't arbitrarily link one usb device to the physical usb port of the host.
