Historically, Nashville has existed at the center of several competing influences. Geographically, the city has grown out of a middle land between connectors like the Mississippi River and barriers like the Appalachian Mountains, and between the commercial and industrial drives of the North and the agrarian traditions of the South. The push and pull of seemingly contradictory interests and forces has forged Nashville into the eclectic city it is today. The largest and most populated city in Tennessee and also the state’s capital, Nashville has had many economic ups and downs throughout its history, but it appears to be on the rise once again, being declared the third fastest growing economy in the nation as of 2017. Supported by a broadly diversified local economy, Nashville has fashioned itself into a major force in healthcare, music and entertainment, publishing, auto part production, higher education, transportation technology, and tourism. It is home to many Fortune 500 companies including Bridgestone, Dell, Community Health Systems, Nissan North America, and Dollar General. Tourists flock to the city to see the Country Music Hall of Fame, The Grand Ol’ Opry, and the numerous Civil War sites and battlefields in the area. With the constant influx of students, tourists, and businesses arriving in the city, Nashville has relied on its transportation and shipping infrastructure to move people and goods into and out of the city with speed and efficiency. Ranking ninth in total tons carried by rail, the city’s vast network of rail lines and status as a major hub for Class I railroad CSX Transportation has equipped it with the capability to provide intermodal service throughout the region and beyond. Nashville International Airport and the Port of Nashville on the Cumberland River provide access to international and regional markets, and the convergence of three interstate highways in downtown Nashville (I-40, I-65, and I-24) allows for easy trucking access and turnaround. No matter what cargo needs to move and where it needs to go, Nashville’s shipping network can provide a practical and cost-effective solution.
