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.
Seattle is a coastal city in Washington State that's rich in exports including natural resources, construction materials, farming, fishing and consumer goods. Seattle is surrounded by water and interconnected to Canada, Alaska and the continental United States through a robust road and rail infrastructure. Air cargo freight is also a freight shipping option in Seattle.
Seattle freight shipping hubs include:
- Seattle-Tacoma International Airport
- Interstate 5 (I-5) and State Route 99 (SR 99)
- The Olympic Pipeline – a 400-mile pipeline delivering gasoline to areas of the Northwestern United States
- Port of Seattle
- Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railway (BNSF)
- Union Pacific Railroad (UP)
