Maryland is a densely populated state in a densely populated part of the country, so it is well served by interstate highways such as the I-68 and the I-95. Traffic in Maryland can be heavy, and good logistics and planning are especially important in Maryland trucking.
Maryland’s adjacency to Washington DC has had a huge effect on its economy. Defense and biotech are important industries in Maryland, and Maryland produces both high tech products like electronics and chemicals and traditional products like coal and steel. Freight Rate Central serves clients with a wide variety of specialized shipping requirements in the state of Maryland. For example, Maryland electronics companies may require temperature-controlled shipments of fragile electronic components, while Maryland steel fabricators sometimes need special provisions for over weight, over dimensional structural steel columns and girders.
Maryland Shipping and Trucking to Texas, Colorado, Illinois and More
Maryland ships most of its goods to other New England states: Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and of course, D.C. Some Maryland freight is headed for Atlantic ports, particularly the Port of Baltimore on the Chesapeake Bay, which is also a common destination for out-of-state freight. Cross country shipments are not uncommon, with California and Texas as common destinations. The vast majority of Maryland goods are shipped by truck, and that’s why Maryland trucking is such an important industry.
