CNBC named Ohio among the top 10 best states for business because of its infrastructure and logistics capabilities. The Tax Foundation also ranked Ohio No. 1 in distribution center corporate tax costs. With a central geographic location close to customers and a multimodal statewide infrastructure, Ohio makes reliable, efficient shipping possible.
Ohio has the fourth largest interstate highway system in the nation, and 60% of United States and Canadian customers are within a day’s drive, which makes Ohio ideal for road transport.
Measuring over 850,000 square feet, it will be Gabe’s largest distribution center.
