Your New Global Gateway.
A world-class, cargo-dedicated airport in the middle of the largest concentration of North America’s population
No matter where you ship, we ship it faster.
Prevailing wisdom suggests goods must pass through big, international ports to reach international markets quickly. The reality is far different. Demand on these ports often makes them expensive to use and difficult to navigate. However, as one of the world’s few cargo-dedicated airports, Rickenbacker International Airport can get goods anywhere in the world consistently and reliably.
As an added advantage, Rickenbacker is a vital component of the North American International Freight Center, the collection of world-class logistics assets in the 11-county Columbus Region. In the freight center, air, sea, rail and ground transport companies collaborate daily with freight forwarders, consolidators, Customs brokers and third-party logistics providers to move freight around the world faster than any other global gateway.
Rickenbacker International Airport supports the world's largest aircraft operated by premier international freighter operators. Scheduled import and export services connect Ohio with the world, offering easy access to global networks and freight hubs in Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
North America's freight hub
Situated at the heart of the North American International Freight Center, Rickenbacker International Airport and its surrounding partners are a one-day truck drive to nearly half of the U.S. and one-third of the Canadian population, making it one of forwarders' best kept secrets. No other global gateway in North America serves such an extensive freight catchment area.
By moving imports and exports through Rickenbacker International Airport, one of the world's only cargo-dedicated airports, businesses can eliminate hours and costs from their supply chain, creating better efficiencies and higher profits.
The high-capacity Norfolk Southern Rickenbacker Intermodal Terminal, located next to the airport, provides direct rail access to and from major East Coast and West Coast seaports. The nearby CSX Columbus Intermodal Terminal also provides the Columbus Region with vital container transport services.
Over 75 million square feet of warehouse and distribution space
Rickenbacker Inland Port offers one of the largest concentrations of warehouse and distribution space in the world, and there is still significant room for growth airside or landside.
