CSX Northwest Ohio ICTF, OH
The CSX Northwest Ohio ICTF is the critical hub to the CSX’s National Gateway initiative. The facility is located in North Baltimore, Ohio, 36 miles from downtown Toledo along I-75. It is one of five CSX intermodal facilities in Ohio. The other terminals are located in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, and Marion.
The 500-acre facility opened in early 2011 and handles container traffic moving from East Coast ports into Midwest markets. It also serves as a transfer point for trains moving from West Coast ports to East Coast and Midwest destinations without having to be routed through Chicago. Its role in the Midwest is to moves containers closer to smaller markets in a hub and spoke structure.
According to the Akron Club, the facility may undergo further expansion in the near future. The current capacity is 2 million lifts per years. NW Ohio ICTF currently handles approximately 2,000 containers per day. About 30 scheduled trains go through this facility on a daily basis. This facility can be considered an Emerging Inland Port.
