The Columbus interchange allows connection into Ohio’s Foreign Trade Zone #138, providing FTZ services in twenty-five central Ohio counties. FTZ #138 is part of the Rickenbaker Inland Port, a high-speed, international multi-modal logistics hub, located just south of Columbus. The inland port has a tremendous base of air, road, and rail transport companies supported by a mix of premier freight forwarders, consolidators, Customs brokers and third-party logistics providers. It is maintained and administered through the Columbus Regional Airport Authority.
