OmniTRAX Inc. has agreed to partner with the River Ridge Development Authority to further develop the River Ridge Commerce Center’s rail infrastructure and attract major employers to southern Indiana.

Connecting directly with CSX, the park is centrally located and in close proximity to three interstates, Louisville International Airport, the Ohio River and the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville. River Ridge offers multimodal transportation solutions and logistical advantages, authority officials said in a press release.

“Long-term park success requires vision, investment and partnership, and this agreement with OmniTRAX will provide long-term value to the park and our community partners," said Jerry Acy, the authority's executive directo.

The River Ridge Commerce Center is located in Jeffersonville, Indiana, which is in the Louisville, Kentucky, service area. The center is home to several manufacturing and distribution facilities, including those managed by Amazon, A&R Logistics, GE Appliances, Medline and Bose.

"Nationwide, our customers place high value on strategic locations and collaborative local partners, and the River Ridge Commerce Center delivers both," said OmniTRAX Chief Executive Officer Dean Piacente. "We are excited the park’s leadership and local officials selected OmniTRAX to help grow the community and we are eager to get to work."
