Boston is no stranger to moving goods. The city made its name early on as a center for processing wool and manufacturing clothing, textiles, shoes, and leather goods.Though some of these industries remain a part of the region’s economy, the last thirty years has seen a shift toward technology and service jobs. Now the sixth largest economy in the United States, Boston has a very diverse business climate. A top ten tourist destination in the country due to its sixty-two historic sites and numerous hotels and restaurants, as well as an influential education center with ten colleges and universities within city limits including the medical schools of Tufts and Harvard, it’s no surprise thatBoston has been consistently rated one of the top U.S cities in which to live and work. Fort Point Channel, one of the best natural harbors in the country, allows the Port of Boston to accommodate even the largest ocean going ships, and the extensive state-of-the-art facilities in the port allow it to handle1.5 million tons of freight cargo each year. The port is supported by the city’s vast web of highways running through and around the region, a large commercial trucking fleet, Logan International Airport, and extensive railroad lines, all of which comprise a capable network that can meet the needs of all types of intermodal and multimodal shipping from the coast to the interior of the country. This infrastructure makes Boston a premier shipping environment for any cargo moving into or out of the Northeast of the United States.
