Across the Map: Nebraska Vehicle Transport Services
The state of Nebraska is located in the Midwest region of the United States, north of Kansas but south of the Dakotas. Home to just 1.8 million residents, Nebraska ranks 37th among the 50 states in terms of total population as well as 43rd in terms of population density. Considering that Nebraska is the 16th largest state in the Union, its small population and population density are somewhat surprising until you see some of the particulars. Nebraska is primarily agricultural land, used for livestock and food cultivation – Nebraska is one of the largest producers of beef in the United States. Its economy is heavily dependent on agriculture, including beef and pork distribution, which really isn’t surprising considering that Nebraska’s history has long been intertwined with agriculture and livestock cultivation.

Nebraska is one of the few states that does not have a north-south oriented interstate, though it has I-80, an east-west interstate that services a number of its larger cities. Nebraska, unfortunately, doesn’t have a lot of large cities; in fact, its largest, Omaha, is home to just 421,000 – a fair number, to be sure, but not even close to the three million in Chicago or the eight million in New York City. As indicated by its low population density, the people of Nebraska are spread out across the state and most areas of Nebraska are serviced by state highways as opposed to major interstates. This, of course, makes it more difficult to move vehicles to and from smaller population centers within the state, but cities such as Omaha, Lexington and Lincoln – three of the most popular auto transport locations within Nebraska – are right along I-80.
I-80 is a major interstate that connects New Jersey with San Francisco, and its path takes it through the heart of the Midwest. This is good news for most motorists that are trying to get from one side of the country to the other, but it actually isn’t as helpful for auto transporters considering the fact that it goes through a lot of smaller areas and regions without a lot of population – or popularity when it comes to shipping to them. Auto shippers, like the customers they service, prefer to move from and to major metro areas; this is because the people are going from and to major metro areas, more often than not, and many smaller areas that people ship to are part of larger metro areas.
