Jul 01, 2021
Posting Date:      July 1, 2021

The Eastgate Regional Council of Governments is issuing a Request for Proposals seeking the services of a Consultant to perform a technical feasibility study for the Lordstown Smart Logistics Hub. The Smart Logistics Hub embraces a three-pronged approach to smart logistics: (1) vehicle electrification, (2) connected and automated-ready infrastructure, and (3) future-focused freight transfer yards to maximize the efficiency, reliability, and safety of freight mobility.

The Consultant will work with Eastgate Regional Council of Governments, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), the region’s new Logistics Council, and other regional stakeholders to develop an actionable strategy for infrastructure enhancements in the vicinity of the Smart Logistics Hub. The study’s findings could also potentially be applied at other freight hubs/corridors across the State of Ohio.

This is a 9-month project with concise interim summary deliverables due at the end of each phase. Emphasis will be placed on the quality and clarity of executable strategic recommendations rather than the volume of technical content. Proposals should include a strategy to execute each phase of the Scope of Services.

Each team shall submit a total of one (1) copy of the Proposals in a sealed envelope clearly marked on the outside “Proposal for the Lordstown Smart Logistics Hub Feasibility Study”, as well as a digital version by email to

All questions should be directed to Eastgate's Director of Tansportation, Ken Sympson, at
