  • Cincinnati’s supply chain infrastructure is growing to new heights with Amazon Air’s $1.5 billion hub, set to open next year. Amazon has operated flights out of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, known as CVG, since 2017. But in spring 2019, the e-tailer broke ground on its Air Hub in line with Amazon's "commitment to ensure fast, free shipping,"
  •  A growing list of small businesses and developers are swarming to the Cincinnati region, making use of the expanding industrial infrastructure, business-friendly policies and initiatives, and an educated workforce enticed by a relatively low cost of living.
  •  Norfolk Southern and CSX link Cincinnati to the eastern U.S. and the rest of the Midwest, along with three intermodal terminals and three train classification yards, with area railroads operating on average 100 trains per day.
  •  The Port of Greater Cincinnati situated along the Ohio River is ranked as the busiest inland port in the U.S. by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. And CVG has emerged to be the fastest-growing cargo airport for the last three years in the U.S., according to industry experts.

 

Sounds alot like Worcester???

Glad I don’t live on the west side if ORH becomes an Amazon cargo hub.

Would be horrible to have a major employer this close to your house contributing to the tax base. WOuld be the best thing to happen to the taxpayers of Worcester, including the West Side.
