Auto Transportation to Southaven, Mississippi
Southaven is a city located in DeSoto County, Mississippi, and is currently a part of the Memphis, Tennessee Metropolitan Statistical Area. Despite its name, Southaven is not actually in southern Mississippi; in fact, it actually sits on the northern border with Tennessee, and as you may have guessed sits near Memphis, Tennessee. Southaven is one of the fastest-growing cities in the state of Mississippi; at the 2000 US Census, the population was just under 29,000; as of the 2010 US Census, however, the population of Southaven stood at just under 49,000 residents, indicating a pretty major swing upwards in terms of total residents. Today, Southaven is the third-largest city in the state of Mississippi in terms of total population, behind Jackson and Gulfport. Also, the reason why Southaven is named such, when it is located so far north in Mississippi, is the fact that there is a neighborhood in Memphis known as “Whitehaven,” and Southaven sits just south of that neighborhood.
Southaven actually sits in northwestern Mississippi, as it sits close to both the Tennessee state line (to the north) as well as the Arkansas state line, to the west. One of the things that really helps when it comes to finding auto transportation services to or from Southaven is the fact that it sits along Interstate 55, a rather popular north-south interstate that passes directly through the third-largest city in Mississippi – as well as Memphis. This allows auto transportation companies easy access to a wide variety of areas around Memphis, including Southaven – which is one of the easier areas to get to or from in the Memphis metropolitan area, considering it’s a straight shot down south. I-55 is the main north-south connector through many of the largest cities in Mississippi including Jackson, and also connects to other major interstates such as I-10 in southeastern Louisiana, 1-20 in southern Mississippi, and I-40 in Memphis.
These connections to major east-west routes makes it easier for auto transport companies to run routes along I-55, but Mississippi is fairly rural and not as popular of an auto transport location as other states no matter what you do to it, really, so finding auto transportation services to or from many areas in the state will likely take a bit. Summer is generally easier to find shippers in, as there are more of them on the road moving cars to take advantage of the higher number of customers, but during the winter months some areas of the country tend to freeze up, while others just sort of fall down by the wayside in terms of popular auto shipping destinations.
