An Ideal, Easily Accessible Location

Ohio is a well-established base for companies moving goods around the globe and is easily accessible to much of the U.S. and Canada; in fact, it’s just a one-day drive from 60% of the two countries’ populations. Major cities, including Chicago, New York City, and Toronto, are easily accessible via air, rail, and road. Among the nation’s leaders for trucking and storing goods, Ohio’s north coast on Lake Erie includes a powerful and convenient shipping service linking the Industrial Midwest, the Port of Toledo, and the Great Lakes to Europe.

Major cities in Ohio with populations over 275,000 include Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Toledo. Only California and Texas have more cities of this size. Other metropolitan areas with populations over 50,000 include Dayton, Akron, and Youngstown.

The pandemic has exposed America’s overreliance on foreign nations for critical goods. Lack of manufacturing capacity, broken supply chains, and ineffective stockpiles have led to critical goods shortages when supplies were most needed.

In times when supply chain disruptions can have global implications, companies may be seeking to reshore operations and find a suitable location that provides an open, secure, and cost-effective home for their supply chain.
