One of the oldest and most influential cities in America, Philadelphia has had a proud and storied municipal history. From the signing of the Declaration of Independence to its role as the second capital of the United States, to its reputation as the “workshop of the world” during its manufacturing height, Philadelphia has long been a powerful and important east coast city, and remains so today. Its central location along the east coast provides Philadelphia with convenient access to northeast and southeast markets, as well as a direct route west to Chicago and beyond. The city’s infrastructure is some of the nation’s oldest. The Port of Philadelphia (known as PhilaPort), located on the Delaware River, is over 300 years old and is one of the largest freshwater ports and one of the busiest shipping centers in the world. The Philadelphia International Airport, the twentieth busiest in the nation, is on track to open a brand new shipping facility in September of 2021 that will provide warehousing, logistics facilities and increased air shipping capacity for the city. Once home to the famed Pennsylvania Railroad, a Class I railroad established in 1846 that grew to become the largest corporation in the world with a budget second only to the U.S government until its decline and bankruptcy in 1976, Philadelphia has remain firmly connected to the railroad networks of the region. Two modern Class I railroads, Norfolk Southern and CSX, connect directly to the Port of Philadelphia, allowing for a smooth transition of cargo from ship to rail, and I-95 and other interstates provide convenient trucking lanes into and out of the city. While the decline of manufacturing nationwide has led Philadelphia to shift its economic focus toward financial services, health education, biotechnology, telecommunications, food processing, and other areas, the city continues to rely on its ability to move cargo in an efficient and cost effective way and to maintain the necessary capabilities to do so.
