Auto Shipping to Greensboro, North Carolina
Greensboro is a city in as well as the county seat of Guilford County, in the U.S. state of North Carolina. Formerly spelled “Greensborough,” it was renamed in 1895. The city itself was first established in 1808 around the Guilford County Courthouse, and was established as the county seat due to its geographical location near the center of the county.
The city today is home to a population of over 277,000 residents, which makes it the third-largest city by population in the state. Greensboro is also the anchor of the Greensboro Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is one of the largest metro areas in the state, and is the largest city in the Piedmont Triad region. It is also where the major interstates of I-40, I-73 and I-85 all meet, making auto shipping to Greensboro much easier to find and complete for carriers.
Auto shipping to Greensboro is also helped by its sheer size. Auto shippers want to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas because that’s where the majority of their customers tend to be. They want to stick close to those big cities and those groups of customers because it makes it easier and more cost-effective for them.
They end up reducing the number of open spaces on their trucks and oftentimes can keep a full load through the city. Metro areas are prime auto shipping locations for customers as well, as there are often more than a few either going to or coming out of said area, which attracts carriers.
As mentioned, Greensboro is where I-40, I-73 and I-85 all intersect, making it a natural area for carriers to want to go to. Those interstates provide access to a number of other major cities and metro areas across the entire region, giving carriers access to yet more customers that are only a few hours to a day or two away.
This keeps their overhead costs lower, as they can spend their fuel more efficiently – fuel, naturally, is a carrier’s highest overhead cost, as those trucks need hundreds of dollars of fuel to operate, and many get as low as 8-12 miles per gallon on the highway. Efficiency is important considering their fuel efficiency is not all that great.
