Ohio River Industrial Sites


The Ohio River’s 451 miles of shoreline borders 10 counties in the southern part of Ohio, supporting electric generation plants and polymer manufacturing processes. The river is a major transportation choice for moving coal, steel and other bulk materials.

Companies favor transporting on the river because it is environmentally friendly and saves companies the most time and money – 40 percent less to move goods by barge than by rail and 73 percent less than by truck. Every year, 63 million tons of goods are transported via the Ohio River, with two routes to the Gulf of Mexico.
