By far the largest city by population in Arizona, Phoenix has long been the economic center of The Grand Canyon State. Traditionally focused on agriculture and natural resources such as copper, cotton, cattle, and citrus, Phoenix has shifted its economy in recent years to more modern industries like real estate, financial services, healthcare, retail, and tourism. First incorporated in1881, the city would live up to its namesake and rise from the ashes of a small bygone colony to become a thriving metropolis. Aided by the establishment of amain rail line by the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1926 and the unveiling of the Sky Harbor Airport in 1930, the newly accessible city grew exponentially in the subsequent decades. The end of World War II brought a population boom as many soldiers who had been trained in and around the Phoenix area at various military bases and airfields returned to the region with their families to settle. As the city expanded and modernized, it attracted technology companies such asIntel and McDonnell Douglas, and had soon shifted its manufacturing strength towards computers, electronics, aircraft parts and missiles. Due to its economic and population growth, Phoenix has established a capable transportation infrastructure to accommodate cargo coming into and out of the region. Trucking, operating in the 66,000 miles of highway in Arizona, comprises the majority of freight shipping in the state, though its historic and extensive railway network is also a large factor in Phoenix’s shipping capacity. The city’s airport, Sky Harbor International, handles nearly 90% of all air cargo originating or terminating in Arizona. This willingness to grow and adapt has made Phoenix the undisputed corporate and industrial center of the southwest, and a formidable economic force in modern America.
