The great city of Chicago is located near the Southern most area of Lake Michigan. This is one of the many factors that contribute to Chicago being the sixth largest export market in all the United States. So much so, that 1 in every 5 jobs in Chicago depend on imports or exports.
As we would expect for a city such as Chicago to have the greatest part of its freight transportation to be water born. Besides Chicago having a major freight rail and two major airports, where massive amounts of cargo enter and exit Chicago, its port still takes the lead. Illinois International Port is the port that moves the most cargo in all of the Great Lakes, by moving over 19 million tons of cargo per year. This massive movement of goods and products emerging from all ports in Chicago, would put Chicago among the top 36 ports in all of the United States. The cargo that embarks from these ports travel through the world, having an ever-present role in the global economy.
Shipping freight in and out of Baltimore is a smooth process with Maryland’s robust freight transportation infrastructure that’s rich in history. The Port of Baltimore was established in 1706, and the first freight railroad was established in Baltimore in 1827. Today, freight continues to move on water, rail, highway, and in the air.
Maryland’s economy balances on a robust freight and logistics network. The movement of goods across all modes of transportation is crucial to all businesses, including: healthcare, biotech, service businesses, agriculture, manufacturing and supply chain distribution. Home to the likes of Verizon and Black and Decker Corp, Maryland supply chains have many options to keep their freight moving no matter where they ship.
