Detroit Freight Shipping

Once again, the trucking industry handles the majority of freight volume in Michigan. However, of the freight that isn't handled by ground transportation, Detroit handles the majority of high-value, time-sensitive freight via air freight. Canada is a huge trading partner with Detroit, Michigan. Cross-border freight shipping to Canada accounts for billions of U.S. dollars in trade. Detroit is heavy on shipping raw, non-metallic materials like sand and gravel, and the transportation of farm products and LTL shipments to warehouses and distribution centers place in close second.
