Transportation Access

Logistics and distribution issues are immediately solved with excellent transportation access. Interstate 75, the major north/south corridor, traverses our mid-section and connects to Interstate 80-90 (Ohio Turnpike), a major east/west transportation route, only 40 miles to our north. See our interactive service territory map here.

More fuel-efficient and environmentally-sound coast-to-coast shipping options are right at hand via the largest intermodal rail system in the eastern U.S. - located one mile from I-75 and provided by the largest intermodal rail system in the eastern U.S. - CSX.  And AmtrakLake Erie and the Port of Toledo are less than an hour away, offering worldwide shipping and recreation.

Your operation will be located 40 miles south of Toledo, 100 miles south of Detroit, 100 miles northwest of Columbus, 120 miles west of Cleveland, 160 miles north of Cincinnati and 300 miles east of Chicago. All major markets east of the Mississippi will be easily accessible to your company.

Infrastructure is in place with a development team to assist you in settling your valuable operations into a year-round community beauty in the heart of the Midwest, with educational centers and higher learning facilities readying an eager workforce to meet your needs.
