A Brief History of Birmingham
- The city of Birmingham was founded in 1871, not long after the end of the Civil War. It actually coalesced together from several smaller towns in the area, and was planned from the beginning to be a cheaper place that would attract laborers of all classes. Freed slaves flocked to the new blast furnaces and mining operations that sprang up in Birmingham, giving the city and the industries and companies within its borders a competitive edge in selling their goods and maintaining a strong industrial presence in the region. Had the Civil War not just happened, chances are Birmingham never would have been founded; the migrant freed-slave population in the Deep South at the time was staggering, and the new city gave many people of all different backgrounds a chance to prosper with the promise of work and pay.

What to Expect when Shipping to or from Birmingham
- As the largest city in the state, Birmingham is naturally relatively easy for motorists to get into and out of, with no less than three main interstates running through the Birmingham metropolitan area. This not only allows individuals to get into and out of the city, but also car transport drivers who are running routes into and out of the Birmingham area. Cities that are easier for transport trucks to get to will almost always be cheaper than cities that don’t lie along major interstates. It helps that Birmingham sits along three major ones – I-20, which runs east-west from west Texas to eastern Florida; I-65, a north-south interstate that runs from Mobile, on the southern coast of Alabama, all the way up to Chicago; and I-59, which runs northeast from Birmingham to Chattanooga, Tennessee. With many different route options for transporters to choose from, there are many ways they can get into and out of the city, which ultimately helps keep prices lower.
