Accessibility, low costs, and a concentration of logistics and supply chain workers increase speed to market for Northeast Ohio logistics companies.

Facilitating Movement throughout North America and Europe.

With a GRP of $3.9 billion and nearly 3,000 logistics and supply chain companies, logistics is a healthy industry in the Northeast Ohio Region.

Whether highway, rail, water, or air, Northeast Ohio offers multiple intermodal transportation options to move raw materials into Ohio and finished products to customers across the region and the nation, increasing speed to market. The nation’s fourth largest interstate system includes major highways running north to south and east to west that provide access to most of the Midwest and East Coast within eight hours. Multiple rail options including Class 1 railroads (Norfolk Southern and CSX) and short lines provide convenient access to the entire nation. The Port of Cleveland is the only port on the Great Lakes that provides regularly scheduled direct shipping service to Europe, giving companies an efficient way to move cargo to global markets. In addition, the region offers four dedicated air cargo terminals and seven commercial airports.

Northeast Ohio companies can also get ahead with logistics 4.0 resources, as Ohio is home to smart mobility research and initiatives including truck platooning, connected vehicles, unmanned aircraft systems, and more.
