About the Port of Toledo

The Port of Toledo, located at the confluence of the Maumee River and the western basin of Lake Erie, links producers and consumers to domestic and international markets.  With nearly seven miles of seaway draft waterfront and integrated access to rail, trucking, and air transport modes, the Port of Toledo is one of the busiest and most diverse transportation centers on the Great Lakes. Cargos from corn to coal to metal products along with numerous other dry and liquid goods are handled by well-trained crews and supported by a team of economic professionals.  There’s plenty of room to grow; facilities and land exist for development and Port Authority professionals are ready to help.

Toledo is located at a national crossroads of four railroads and two transcontinental highways.  Forty-three percent of the U.S. industrial market and forty-seven percent of the Canadian market are located within a one day drive (500 mile radius) of Toledo.

The greater Toledo area has a population of over half a million people, many of whom are employed in the glass, automotive, transportation & logistics, metal, and machine industries.  The city is undergoing major revitalization including projects to improve the downtown and waterfront areas.  Toledo is home to the award winning Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo Zoo, and Toledo Symphony as well as the 2005 Governor's Cup Baseball Champions, The Toledo Mudhens.
