Ohio Maritime Strategy​

Ohio's Maritime Strategy will inform the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) as it seeks to leverage Ohio's maritime transportation system (MTS) to enable economic competitiveness and growth. In developing the strategy, ODOT intends to answer the following questions:

  1. What asset and services comprise Ohio's MTS?
  2. Who are the existing and potential users of Ohio's MTS?
  3. What are options for ODOT's role in maritime freight transportation, including policies, plans, and actions?

A series of seven working papers aim to answer these questions to determine a maritime strategy for Ohio. Below are the working papers and the final maritime strategy.
