Secure Drop Yard in the Milwaukee , Wisconsin
Because of its location near the nation's population center—nearly 66 million people and one-third of U.S. manufacturing output is within 600 miles of the city—Milwaukee is a major commercial shipping hub. The Port of Milwaukee is a shipping and receiving point for international trade as well as the primary heavy-lift facility on the Great Lakes. With access to the eastern seaboard via the St. Lawrence Seaway and to the Gulf of Mexico through the Mississippi River, the Port of Milwaukee processes three million tons of cargo annually. Principal inbound commodities include cement, coal, machinery, steel, salt, limestone, asphalt, and crushed rock. More than 500 multiservice motor freight carriers are engaged in shipping goods from Milwaukee to markets throughout the country. Two major rail lines serve the greater Milwaukee area. More than 200 million pounds of cargo is handled annually by air freight carriers at General Mitchell International Airport, Wisconsin's primary terminal for freight shipments.
