Welcome to Transport Ohio
Ohio is a well-established base for companies moving goods around the globe, being just a one-day drive from more than 60 percent of the U.S. and Canadian populations. This, along with having the nation’s fourth largest interstate system, fourth highest number of rail lines, eighth most maritime tonnage, and being second in the number of intermodal facilities, makes Ohio a pivotal point in the global marketplace.
But freight movement is incredibly competitive. The cost to move materials and products is a major consideration for conducting and locating businesses.
How can Ohio make smart transportation improvements to reduce business costs, improve freight movement connectivity, reliability, and access to local, regional and far flung international markets?
To address these questions, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) developed Transport Ohio as a program to inform and support future infrastructure investments on Ohio’s multi-modal freight network and to retain and attract jobs and commerce.
