Lordstown Smart Logistics Hub

Eastgate Regional Council of Governments is pursuing the creation of the Lordstown Smart Logistics Hub, a strategic infrastructure initiative to capitalize on Lordstown’s location at the intersection of multiple modes of transportation, broadband, and electrification to position the area as the premier regional warehousing and distribution hub.

The initial phase of the project focuses on immediate freight system needs including (1) a triple trailer transfer yard, (2) solar powered electric vehicle charging stations, and (3) “Smart Corridor” broadband fiber optic and wireless communication devices.

Eastgate is promoting the Lordstown Smart Logistics Hub by studying the needs of the area and pursuing avenues for funding, such as applying for grants. Eastgate has also commissioned a feasibility study for potential projects and technologies to implement in the area. The study is being conducted by consultants at Michael Baker International.
