Columbus, OH continues to grow as a strategic location for third party logistics services. Sixty percent of the US population can be served with overnight service from Columbus. Rickenbacker Air Industrial Park is one of the most successful shared military and commerce centers in the US with over 20 million square feet of warehousing space constructed during the past 10 years. This outstanding growth will continue through 2006 as N & S completes the first phase development of a state-of-the-art Intermodal Center and anticipates moving containers from the east coast ports into Columbus by the end of 2006.
