Across the Map: Louisiana Auto Transport Services
The state of Louisiana is the 31st largest state in the Union in terms of total area and also ranks 25th in total population and 24th in population density. Though settlement of areas in Louisiana have been around since the late 17th century, it was not until its admission as a state in 1812 that Louisiana saw any considerable growth. However, at the time, New Orleans was a bustling trading port that it still remains to this day; in fact, New Orleans is one of the most important ports not just in Louisiana but in the entire United States. With the rise of slavery and the slave trade New Orleans’ importance only grew; by the outbreak of the Civil War in the 1860’s New Orleans was one of the largest slave markets in the entire country.

When it comes to transporting vehicles into and out of Louisiana you want to make sure that you’re shipping to or from major populated areas. Cities such as Shreveport, Baton Rouge and New Orleans are some of the most popular locations for auto shipping into or out of Louisiana because they sit along major interstates that auto transporters prefer to run their routes along. I-10 is perhaps the more heavily-traveled interstate in Louisiana as it passes through areas like Saint Charles, Baton Rouge and New Orleans, while I-20 runs through Shreveport, which sits in the northern part of the state. Shreveport – and I-20 – connect to I-10 via I-49, an intrastate highway (which is still part of the interstate highway) that only connects I-20 to I-10. However, this allows auto transporters to easily get from one metro area to the other quickly, and it also allows them to open up their routes and take more freight into and out of the state without taking huge cuts in time or profit.
