Findlay and Hancock County have a central location in a state that’s at the center of much of the nation’s population. What makes that location even more important to your business is that our extensive access to transportation makes it easier to get what you need and send out what you supply.
For starters, Interstate 75, which runs through Findlay, not only bisects the eastern U.S., it gives you fast connections to other Interstate arteries like I-70, I-80, and I-90, along with the U.S. and Canadian automotive markets. Dozens of intrastate and interstate trucking firms and three major overnight package delivery services operate in our area, ensuring that your supply chain is as fast as possible.
We’re also well-served by rail, with multiple CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern lines extending in all directions. The CSX National Gateway is just seven miles from Findlay. In addition to fast service, that provides strong competition to keep freight rates low. The rail routes also connect with Ohio’s outstanding ports, including barge shipping on the Ohio River and ocean-going ships from Lake Erie.
If air transportation matters, it’s hard to beat the convenience of Findlay Airport’s 6,500-foot main runway — along with commercial airline service through Toledo (45 minutes away), or within two hours at Dayton, Columbus, Cleveland, and Detroit.
It’s also important to know that Hancock County is receives benefits as a Foreign Trade Zone (#151), providing substantial benefit to companies trading with other countries.
