16 16 Lake Erie Ports

17 Ohio Lakeport Comparative Analysis Toledo Cleveland Ashtabula Acres Available for Outside Storage ,000 Sq Ft of Covered Storage , ,500 0 Crane Capacity Two 64-ton mobile harbor cranes; two gantry cranes, 110- ton and 72-ton capacity Three 60-ton crawler cranes; one150-ton stationary crane One 70-ton crawler crane; two 45-ton gantry cranes 17


19 Air Cargo Issues Ohio was once a hub for air freight; now the state has the most unused capacity in North America Extremely challenging business environment Litany of reasons for decline in Ohio air cargo Dominance of FedEx and UPS Use of regional jets decreased belly cargo capacity Shift to 2 nd and 3 rd day delivery by trucks Industry consolidation Competition: Minneapolis, Detroit and Chicago attract shipments from a 500 mile radius Result: vacant facilities in Toledo, Wilmington, and Dayton total nearly 3,000,000 square feet 19


21 Parking Truck Policy Strategy Brainstorming Sponsor P3 for truck parking facilities Oversize/overweight routes Identify a system of routes for Superloads, inclusive of lake and river ports Funding Identify MAP-21 compliant freight routes (eligible for 95% funding share) Metropolitan-level freight routes Fuel Cost Support of natural gas fuel distribution network for commercial vehicles 21

22 Congestion and Mobility Trucking Strategies continued Investigate and model the impact of a mode shift Real time system performance information = ITS Evaluate mobility impact of 70mph rural interstate speed limits High productivity truck lanes 22

23 Mode shift: Rail Freight Strategies Good data on truck freight to gauge the commodity/distance that could be divertible to rail; Expanding domestic intermodal via NS and CSX investments Estimate benefits to highway system, and other public benefits Reporting on rail freight deficiencies ( state of the system? ) to illustrate investment needs Evaluate new or expanding markets Shale oil and gas Agriculture export 23

24 Ohio River Strategies Evaluate potential mode shifts principally from rail Bulk cargo greater than 500 miles Container on barge as an opportunity How much is realistic? And what impact would such a service have? Designation of some terminals as part of a Superload network Last mile connections to terminals Marine Highway designations (M-70, M-90) what impact? 24

25 New cargo evaluation Short sea shipping Lake Erie Port Strategies Maher Medford International Terminal real or imaginary Shale oil and gas Inbound materials to Ohio fracking sand, pipe, equipment Outbound petroleum distribution networks Containers vessel feeder service Empty container consolidation to promote Mode shift analysis Freight moving by truck or rail that fits water profile 25

26 Air Cargo Strategies In spite of the vacant facilities, it will be difficult/ impossible to attract a new air cargo carrier they don t exist Very strategic and niche market development are most appropriate, tailored to each airport. For example, Rickenbacker strategy based on real estate development associated with air cargo-dependent manufacturing Toledo conversion to trucking terminal, and develop manufacturing and related air charter operations Wilmington Airpark niche agricultural products for export 26

27 Air Cargo Strategies Strategies continued Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky (CVG) strongest cargo operation in the Ohio freight study DHL modernization of facilities, with contingencies for expansion FedEx has increased operations in the area Southern Air could become new tenant Regional discussions of an airpark, though it does not have to be on airport property Given the strength of CVG operation, reliable access will be an important consideration in formulating not only development decisions, but also decisions to relocate in a park whose purpose will be to house activities focused on air logistics 27

28 Look-ahead: MAP-21 Freight Planning Provisions State Freight Plans Identify significant freight system trends, needs, and issues with respect to the State; Policies, strategies, and performance measures that will guide freight-related transportation investment decisions; Describe how the plan will improve the ability of the State to meet the national freight goals established under section 167 of title 23, United States Code; Consideration of innovative technologies and operational strategies, including ITS, that improve the safety and efficiency of freight movement; Improvements that may be required to reduce or impede the deterioration on heavy vehicle routes; and Inventory of facilities with freight mobility issues, such as truck bottlenecks, within the State, and a description of the strategies the State is employing to address those freight mobility issues. 28
