OmniTRAX, Team NEO partner to attract manufacturers to northeast Ohio


OmniTRAX Inc. is expanding its Rail-Ready Sites program to the Cleveland and Cuyahoga Railroad (CCRL) with support from Team NEO.

The Rail-Ready Sites program is designed to connect companies with rail-served properties to help support industrial development.

OmniTRAX and Team NEO are marketing four new sites that include two parcels eclipsing 40 acres of greenfield space and two rail-served facilities totaling 254,000 square feet on the CCRL. The 35-mile short line offers transload and multimodal services with connections to Norfolk Southern Railway and Wheeling and Lake Erie Railway Co.

The program complements JobsOhio's SiteOhio authenticated sites and NEO RightSites initiatives, which aim to market shovel-ready and highly competitive sites in the region, OmniTRAX and Team NEO officials said in a news release.

"Northeast Ohio has a strong transportation network with a reputation for serving Ohio's deep manufacturing history, and these Rail Ready Sites will continue the region's proud manufacturing legacy," said OmniTRAX Vice President of Industrial Development Ean Johnson.
