Vehicle Shipping Services to Baltimore
Baltimore is the largest city in the state of Maryland. Home to over 621,000 as of the most recent estimates, Baltimore is a major port and one of the main international auto transportation hubs on the east coast. Its location made it a prime immigration center during its formative years, and its large port allowed manufacturing to thrive, thanks to an abundance of distribution methods. Baltimore’s growth began to slow after World War II, and by the 1980’s the manufacturing sector had shrunk severely, as many manufacturing-based cities did during the time. Deindustrialization hit the city hard; today, the economy of Baltimore has shifted to a service-based economy, largely in the medical and sciences industries. Baltimore is an independent city; it does not form a part of Baltimore County, though the county does surround the city. You can learn more about Baltimore here.
Baltimore is located forty miles northeast of Washington, DC, and is linked by a variety of smaller suburbs and interstates, including I-95, one of the most prominent and important north-south interstates in the United States. I-95, in particular, is so popular among auto transporters because it connects some of the largest cities in the entire country together in one long line, meaning they don’t have to complicate their routes with numerous different roads and ways of getting around – they can just stay on one interstate from Miami to Maine, and hit so many major cities in between. Areas such as Miami, Orlando, Jacksonville, Richmond, Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Providence and Boston are all easily accessible from the same road.
When you’re searching for auto transport services, you need to understand that auto shippers are all about convenience. They don’t take complicated shipments unless they’re adequately compensated, and easy money is always what they’re after. That’s why transporting to or from major metro areas generally tends to save you money – it’s easier to deliver a vehicle to a city if four other people are also going there, as carriers can collect multiple payments in one stop, then find new loads just as quickly. That’s why I-95 is so popular – so many people shipping to or from those areas makes it easy. This is why prices to Baltimore should be fairly competitive, particularly if you’re shipping to another area along I-95 or one of the other auxiliary interstates that run through it.
