OmniTRAX adds northern Ohio short line to rail-ready program (9/30/2020)


OmniTRAX Inc. announced today it's expanding its Rail-Ready Sites program to the Northern Ohio & Western Railway (NOW) with the support of the Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership in northwestern Ohio.

The OmniTRAX program helps connect companies looking to improve supply-chain performance with rail-served properties.

OmniTRAX and the economic group will market three initial sites on the NOW, with parcels ranging from 14 to 72 acres. NOW, which interchanges with Norfolk Southern Railway and CSX, currently works with customers in the industrial and manufacturing sectors, as well as producers of limestone, lime and pressed board, OmniTRAX officials said in a press release.

The Interstate-75 corridor in northwestern Ohio is "bustling" due to its proximity to major markets and infrastructure, said Ean Johnson, vice president of industrial development at OmniTRAX.

"The sites we've identified with the Tiffin-Seneca Economic Partnership take advantage of these benefits and the area's growing industrial base provides great product for attracting new industries," Johnson said.
