Across the Map: Alabama Auto Transport
A member of the short-lived Confederate States of America, the state of Alabama has a long history of agricultural dominance in the Gulf Coast region that – before the war – made it one of the richest states in the Union. However, after the Civil War, Alabama became mired in poverty. It was devastated by the war, and during Reconstruction and, indeed, until the outbreak of World War II robber barons with strong ties to the dying agricultural industry dominated the economy of Alabama. It was during this time that much of the economic and sociological damage that Alabama is currently trying to recover from was done. However, with World War II came the rise of southern manufacturing, particularly in Alabama. Today, the state is known for its military hardware production and other manufacturing ventures.
Typically, transporting a vehicle to or from one of the major cities in Alabama isn’t that difficult for carriers to manage, as there are several different interstates that criss-cross through various parts of the state, making it easier for them to go from one interstate to another easily. I-20, which runs through Birmingham, is perhaps the most popular of the east-west routes, as it runs through several different states including South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas before turning into I-10 just west of Pecos, Texas. I-65 runs north-south, starting in Chicago up north and passing through cities like Indianapolis, Louisville, Nashville, and Birmingham before hitting Mobile. It’s also popular because the Deep South traditionally has been the home of many interstate trucking companies and drivers for some inexplicable reason; as such, many auto transport drivers will run routes through Alabama in order to spend a day or two with the family before heading back out onto the road.
