When it was founded in 1837, Chicago’s location—convenient to the Great Lakes, and with the Chicago River providing access to the mighty Mississippi River—made it a hub for American commerce. Much has changed over the decades, but when the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning calls the Chicagoland area “North America’s freight hub,” it’s no idle boast; 25% of the nation’s freight trains and 50% of its intermodal trains pass through, as do tens of thousands of trucks daily. Whether your freight is originating from or headed to, Chicago, the assistance of a 3PL broker like Able Transport Solutions helps keep logistics for heavy machinery on time and on track.
From the Windy City to New York City or the Emerald City, We’ve Got You Covered.
