“Logistically, Northwest Ohio made a lot of sense for CSX. There are many assets here which you can build into your supply chain to be profitable.”
Low taxes have helped Ohio become the most business-friendly state in the Midwest for the logistics industry, which is supported by a qualified industrial workforce and comprehensive infrastructure. Companies like CSX have taken advantage of these assets to further grow their operations. With all that, it’s no wonder some of the biggest names in consumer products have established multistate distribution centers in Northwest Ohio, including Home Depot, Best Buy and Menards.
