At eight million residents, New York is the most densely populated of any U.S city and encompasses the largest municipal and regional economy in the country. The city is a major hub for banking, security, the garment industry, financial services, food processing, commercial distribution, and medical manufacturing, and the upstate area of New York contributes significantly to the farming, logging, livestock and dairy industries. With such a broad and diverse offering of goods and services, its no wonder New York is home to one of the most formidable shipping infrastructures in the nation. While rail and traffic is difficult to operate smoothly through such a densely congested area, New York still relies heavily on its railroad network to move cargo from its ports into the interior of the country, investing $100 million into its new Freight NYC plan to streamline the flow of freight into and out of the city. John F. Kennedy International airport, sixth busiest in the U.S and major gateway for international freight coming into and out of the country, currently supports twenty five cargo airlines that operate out of its facilities. The Port of New York and New Jersey handles over 6.7 million TEU containers arriving and departing its natural harbor annually and is a major economic engine driving trade in the region. The high volume of goods moving in and out of New York ensures less expensive pricing, and its complex and extensive network of shipping capabilities enables any cargo to be moved rapidly and at a reasonable price.
