Shipping from Milwaukee, WI

Milwaukee’s rise to prominence is typical of other industrial Midwest cities like Chicago, Cleveland, and Detroit. Initially founded as a trading post on the then-western frontier of the country, Milwaukee’s favorable location on the banks of Lake Michigan helped drive its steady growth. By 1862, the city was a leading grain center for the nation, connecting Midwest farmland to the rest of the United States through its port on Lake Michigan and a rapidly expanding system of rail lines throughout the region. With growth came industry and manufacturing, and the creation of jobs attracted a wealth of European immigrants to the area, predominantly from Germany, Poland, Scotland and Ireland. The influx of German immigrants in large numbers eventually led to Milwaukee’s reputation as a brewing city when the German love of taverns and beer halls made its way into the fabric of the society, and Milwaukee would at one time be the home of beer titans Pabst, Schlitz, Miller and Blatz, as well as countless microbrew operations. Milwaukee’s reputation as “Beer City” lives on through its beloved baseball team the Brewers, though many of the larger companies have since moved to other states. Today, Milwaukee remains a strong manufacturing force in the Midwest, with a presence in aluminum casting, automotive parts, and batteries, though its economy has diversified to include a broader range of industries such as tourism, education, and financial services. The city still relies heavily on its Lake Michigan port with access to international markets through the St. Lawrence Seaway and Atlantic Ocean, as well as the 3,300 miles of rail lines spread throughout the state of Wisconsin to move its goods. Trucking also plays a large part in the shipping industries of Milwaukee, and its connection to the Midwest corridor of interstates gives the city a capable network with which to move cargo into and out of the region.
