Businesses in Pickerington have the benefit of being centrally located within an economic corridor bordered by two major highways (I-70 and US-33). Fifteen miles away to the north and west respectively, are the Port Columbus Airport and Rickenbacker Inland Port (international airport and intermodal terminal).
Port Columbus International Airport
Port Columbus is the airport of choice for millions of passengers each year and provides service to most major airline hubs in the United States. Port Columbus is undergoing a Terminal Modernization Program, which includes new terrazzo flooring throughout the airport, new ceilings, new restrooms, more TSA security lanes, and new LED lighting.
Rickenbacker Inland Port
Located 15 miles west of Pickerington, Rickenbacker Inland Port is a high-speed international, multimodal logistics hub with an unparalleled location and access to customers throughout North America. Premier freight forwarders, consolidators, Customs brokers, and third-party logistics providers support its tremendous base of air, road, and rail transport companies.
Rickenbacker International Airport
As one of the world’s only cargo-dedicated airports, Rickenbacker International Airport offers an uncongested option to move air cargo to, from, and within the United States. The airport offers over 200,000 square feet of air cargo facility space, two parallel 12,000 foot runways, and Category II Instrument Landing System for all-weather landing capabilities.
Foreign Trade Zone #138
A Foreign Trade Zone is a site within the United States that is legally considered outside of Customs territory. Goods may be brought into the site duty-free and without formal customs entry. This provides users the opportunity to lower costs and remain competitive with international companies. FTZ #138, the seventh most active FTZ in the U.S., encompasses Rickenbacker, surrounding industrial parks, and a 25-county service area.
