Regional Advantages

Ohio’s inland river system provides access to the Gulf of Mexico via both the Mississippi River and the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway. The Port of New Orleans, Louisiana serves the Mississippi and the Port of Mobile, Alabama serves the Tenn-Tom. North America’s fastest growing trade partner is South America on the ”all water route”. The widening of the Panama Canal will open up the Gulf to Asian originated container traffic.
