Newark is a city located in New Castle County, in the U.S. state of Delaware. The city is currently home to a population of over 31,400 residents, making it the third-largest city in Delaware by population, after Wilmington and Dover. Newark has been settled since 1694, though the town was not officially established until 1758. Schools played a major role in the initial development and growth of Newark, especially the founding of Delaware College in 1833. Delaware College, today, is known as the University of Delaware, one of the largest public universities in the entire state. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Newark – like much of Delaware – turned into a manufacturing powerhouse. Newark was known for the Chrysler Newark Assembly plant, built in 1951; though closed in 2008, the plant was a mainstay in Newark for a long time and was the crown jewel of the city’s manufacturing sector.
Newark sits about 12 miles west-southwest of Wilmington, the largest city by population in all of Delaware. This makes it a lot easier for auto shipping companies and carriers to quickly and easily get into and out of the area without having to spend a lot of time driving along sub-optimal routes. By sticking to major cities and metropolitan areas, auto shipping carriers ultimately save money on each shipment since they don’t have to travel as far for each customer. This helps keep their overhead – namely how much they pay for fuel – a lot lower, and since they don’t have to shell out so much money to transport a vehicle, they end up passing the savings on to you and trying to find more ways to get more customers to ship with them.
It also helps tremendously that Newark sits right along Interstate 95, a major north-south interstate highway in the eastern U.S. and perhaps one of the most heavily-traveled interstate highways in the entire country. It’s really helpful due to the fact that auto shipping companies prefer to run routes through major cities and metro areas along major interstate highways, since that is the fastest, easiest and most cost-effective way into and out of most popular auto shipping areas in the entire United States. Delaware on the whole is not a popular vehicle shipping location, but since it allows access to some of the largest car transport markets in the country you shouldn’t be afraid of high prices or long delays in getting your vehicle picked up, transported or delivered, as Newark is right on the way for many carriers.
