Ohio Railroad Contacts
 
The contacts listed below are the most current Industrial Development contacts for most of Ohio’s railroads. These contacts are responsible for helping businesses looking to locate or expand in Ohio to utilize their respective railroad’s services to ship and receive products.  (However, the Industrial Development contacts listed ARE NOT responsible for any railroad issue other than new business development.  For railroad issues other than industrial development, contact ORDC and we will provide you the appropriate contact information.)  If you have any questions regarding industrial development opportunities in your area, please contact the appropriate person listed below:
