For Information Call

Brown Transport has elected to join Corba because we wish to support a business organization that consists of customers and river terminals. Brown Transport has picked up or delivered bulk commodities to and from all of the river terminals in the Cincinnati area for over 40 years. River commerce has been an important part of our business over the years.

Benchmark

Benchmark’s ownership has a strong sense of community and a strong commitment to support and promote the industries in which they operate.  With no other local entity advocating for the maritime industry in the Greater Cincinnati region, it is essential that the maritime-dependent industry band together to create a voice and advocate for and on behalf of each other.  CORBA has created that place and has been tireless in its efforts to create the needed visibility for our otherwise low-key industry.  CORBA’s advocacy and industry promotion is highly valued.

We believe maritime commerce is vital to our mid-western region’s economy. CORBA is a viable instrument that “gets the word out” not only to prospective world-wide customers but also to city and state leaders who understand the member companies provide well-paid employment opportunities as well as a tax base where they operate.

ODOT

The Ohio DOT values the partnership, innovation and organizational leadership that CORBA provides for the Ohio River. CORBA was a key partner during the Ohio Conference on Freight and was used as the gold standard while forming two additional Ohio River Business Associations which now come together as one ORCO to advocate, educate and inform others of the value of Ohio River commerce. CORBA initiated the Ohio River Economic Impact Study, a first of its kind; and the OKI/CORBA CORIS is so successful, that efforts are underway to expand it to the entire Ohio River system.

NKU

NKU and CORBA have come together in an exciting way! NKU’s Supply Chain Degree Program has worked extensively with CORBA and its membership companies to better understand how the inland waterway system can be leveraged as a vital asset to our region’s logistics network. Our senior students have completed a number of “capstone” projects, partnering with CORBA to garner the first marine highway designation in the area. A related project generated a proposal for shifting freight from heavily congested truck lanes to more economically and environmentally based barge transport using “milk-run” delivery routes across the inland river ways. Additionally, a highlight for our students is being able to attend one or more of the many CORBA events, which include local tours, guest speakers and networking opportunities. WE value our partnership and look forward to ongoing success together to advance the Supply Chain interests, for both academia and businesses in our region.
