Logistics and Distribution

The Perfect Location to Fuel Your Growth

We understand three of the most important principles of running an effective supply chain are agility, adaptability and alignment. The Dayton Region’s multimodal options and central location make it easy to align your company’s logistical needs to thrive in a competitive environment.

The Dayton Region’s central location means you can reach 60 percent of consumers in one day. Within 90 minutes of the area are five international airports — Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Louisville and Indianapolis — responsible for more than 15 percent of all air cargo in North America. Ohio is ranked the top state in both value and weight of domestic shipments, and has the infrastructure required to move those shipments by highway, rail, air or water.
