News about more warehouse development occurring next to Rickenbacker.  This first one is from May:


Central Ohio’s largest-ever spec building coming to Rickenbacker
By Evan Weese, Columbus Business First
Posted on May 23, 2017


A 1.02 million-square-foot warehouse is going up near Rickenbacker International Airport in what’s being touted as Central Ohio’s largest-ever spec building.  Kansas City-based NorthPoint Development has cleared land south of the cargo airport to begin building the first of three bulk distribution facilities, a warehouse that will be expandable to 1.23 million square feet, according to the developer’s website.

NorthPoint says the three-building industrial park, east of the Norfolk Southern Intermodal Yard, will be able to accommodate 2.1 million square feet of space at full build-out.  The first building, on 78 acres, is expected to be completed in November.

This second warehouse development article is from this month:

Pizzuti teeing up $34.5M expansion of Rickenbacker industrial park
By Tristan Navera, Columbus Business First
Posted on September 18, 2017


Pizzuti Companies is planning a much as 1.5 million square feet of industrial space in its latest investment near Rickenbacker International Airport.

The Columbus-based developer is proposing to build three industrial warehouses on a speculative basis near Beggrow Street in what would be a $34.4 million investment around the airport's growing distribution hub.  The project, called "Rickenbacker West," would bring large, rail-served cross-dock facilities near Norfolk Southern's intermodal terminal at Rickenbacker, according to city documents.

The first of these would be an 802,000-square-foot warehouse with the ability to expand to 1 million square feet.  "Phase two has been eleven years in the making," said Pizzuti executive vice president Bill Brennan. "We're starting a speculative building this fall and based on the success of the first building."  Construction on that building is to begin in October and be completed by June 2018.

I'd like to know where CBF is getting their numbers. The CY 2016 ACAIS from the FAA shows that Rickenbacker landed 983,247,285lbs of cargo in 2016.

Business First and the Dispatch said they were reporting on data released by the Columbus Regional Airport Authority - the group that oversees Rickenbacker and John Glenn airports.

You'd think the FAA would have official numbers. They also reported only 102,751 enplanements at Rickenbacker for 2016.

^Since when is cargo expressed in lbs instead of tonnage? Is this to make the number BIGGER than actual?

Enplanements =/= total pax

Also you can find detailed passenger and cargo stats for LCK and CMH here, https://flycolumbus.com/flights/airline-stats

I think enplanements is a more accurate marker then. Thanks for the clarification. Any info on the cargo numbers being so different?

ETA I looked through the link. So "total cargo" and "landed cargo" are the two categories. You'd think total cargo would be higher like total passengers.

Enplanements i believe are passengers departing. "total Passengers" is people arriving AND people departing. So, usually, the number of enplanments for an airport is one-half the number of "passengers".

First Look: Rickenbacker Airport master plan would increase cargo capacity by tenfold
By Carrie Ghose  – Staff reporter, Columbus Business First
March 13, 2018, 1:56pm EDT


Rickenbacker International Airport's cargo capacity would increase by tenfold over the next 20 years under recommendations to update its master plan.  A record 255 million pounds of cargo went through the airport on the south side of Columbus last year - a 27 percent increase over 2016 - with international shipments largely responsible for the increase.

The proposals call for adding taxiways on either side of the runway for more efficient movement of planes, as well as adding seven air cargo transfer stations, where cargo planes are unloaded to waiting trucks.  There currently are four, the largest operated by FedEx.
( . . . )
Other proposals that wouldn't require as much construction include enhancing the passenger terminal with more efficient ticketing, queuing and gates; and accommodating an increase in use by privately owned aircraft.  Rickenbacker's passenger traffic increased by 31 percent to 266,000 in 2017, much smaller than John Glenn Columbus International Airport's 7.5 million.

Costs for the proposals are still being determined.

Dallas developer plans 5-building logistics park near Rickenbacker

In another indication that central Ohio’s industrial market is hot, Dallas-based developer Xebec has bought 106 acres near Rickenbacker Airport and the surrounding intermodal shipping hub.

Macy's to open e-commerce distribution center near Rickenbacker Airport with more than 400 jobs

Macy's Inc. plans to open a Columbus e-commerce distribution center near Rickenbacker International Airport that will create 410 full-time equivalent jobs.

As more brick-and-mortar stores close, retail overall is growing, driven largely by the shift to online shopping.  The National Retail Federation projects 10 percent to 12 percent growth in e-commerce and non-store shopping. ... The Cincinnati-based retailer has existing Ohio distribution centers outside Dayton and Youngstown.
( . . . )
Rickenbacker cargo traffic is at all-time highs.  COTA has a dedicated shuttle to help workers get to the airport's Global Logistics Park.  Pizzuti Companies has started construction on three buildings for a combined 1.5 million square feet of industrial space in the growing distribution hub around the airport, but the Columbus developer said Macy's is not its tenant.

http://www.dispatch.com/business/20180605/new-cargo-flights-for-rickenbacker-expansion-at-area-distribution-centers

-- Rickenbacker Airport and its surrounding logistics hub continue to grow, with new cargo flights and new tenants moving into warehouse space.  Two of the companies operating international freighters — Cargolux and Emirates — have recently each added a fourth weekly flight there, joining the inaugural weekly flight added by Russia-based AirBridgeCargo in April, according to the Columbus Regional Airport Authority.  Rickenbacker now has 16 weekly scheduled international cargo flights in addition to the regular domestic activity there from FedEx and UPS.

-- On the real-estate front, the airport authority, in partnership with Duke Realty and Capital Square Limited, has begun developing a 1.2 million-square-foot distribution center for Goodyear in Rickenbacker Global Logistics Park.  Other new or expanding tenants include Macy’s, which plans to hire more than 400 people by next year to support distribution for its Backstage discount concept; Cheryl & Co. is undertaking a $1.5 million upgrade to its facility on Industrial Center Drive, which will add 27 jobs; and Radial, a company that handles e-commerce fulfillment and transportation for retailers, which is adding 100 jobs at its location on Port Road.

http://www.dispatch.com/business/20180613/rickenbacker-gets-faa-grant-to-help-complete-taxiway-project

-- Cargo-focused Rickenbacker Airport has been awarded a $7.4 million infrastructure grant from the Federal Aviation Administration.  The money will be used for the third phase of a three-part taxiway-rehabilitation project at the airport, which has been seeing double-digit percentage growth in the amount of cargo being shipped.

-- This is the third year in a row that Rickenbacker has received similar grants from the FAA for the taxiway project.  This award brings the total to $22.2 million.

-- Rickenbacker’s growth has been driven by the addition of flights from major international shippers, which serve Columbus’ strong retailing and apparel industry.  Widened runways, that are part of this project, will accommodate the largest class of aircraft from these international shippers, including Cargolux, Emirates and Etihad.
