The warehousing and transportation industry in and around central Ohio is growing. The addition of the Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal, as well as the completion of the Heartland Corridor, are keeping the region's shipping industry in the media spotlight.

In July 2015, the Farm and Dairy Newspaper in Salem, Ohio reported The Rickenbacker International Airport in Columbus recently became one of the few U.S. airports designated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as an approved port for the embarkation of animals in 2014.
Bryan Schreiber, Farm and Dairy's business development manager for air cargo out of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, admits "It is cheaper to transport animals by cargo ship, but it can often take a month and is often not the best solution for the animal. He said that an airplane can have an animal anywhere in the world in 48 hours, even with fuel fill-ups."
Schreiber said the USDA designation at Rickenbacker International Airport is an opportunity for new business partnerships so that the airport can become an integral part of the livestock supply chain. The airport’s location makes it a good fit. Columbus is a one-day drive of nearly 50 percent of the U.S. and 30 percent of Canada’s population.
The bottom line..... "It's all about comfort and speed and keeping the animals happy," said Schreiber.
