A Brief History of Michigan
- Michigan, located on the banks of four different Great Lakes, is the only state in the U.S. that has two peninsulas within its borders. The Lower Peninsula is often considered “Michigan,” and is much more densely populated than the Upper Peninsula, which is colloquially known as the U.P., though the U.P. is still an important part of the state’s economy. First organized into a territory and then admitted as a state in 1837, Michigan – especially Detroit – has long been considered a key industrial state, and indeed manufacturing and industrial output has been at the core of the state’s economy almost since its inception. When the United States began to deindustrialize during the 1970’s and 80’s, the state of Michigan was perhaps hit hardest, and today is still struggling out of the depths of the economic depression and social decay that followed the gutting of the U.S. auto industry over the past three decades.
What to Expect when Shipping to or from Michigan
- Historically considered the cornerstone of the American automotive industry even today, it is somewhat ironic that many carriers won’t go to many northern parts of Michigan, especially during the winter when snow makes it nearly impossible to traverse the upper parts of the state. During the summer months is perhaps the best time to ship, as more people are moving in and out of Michigan and more routes are open to carriers. It helps that there are several major interstates that run through Michigan, including I-94, a popular east-west interstate that links Detroit with Chicago, Illinois. I-75 is a popular north-south interstate that also runs through Detroit, the state’s largest city. I-75 actually goes all the way up into Canada and provides access to many smaller cities north of Detroit, linking much of eastern Michigan with the rest of the U.S. including major metro areas like Cincinnati, Ohio and Atlanta, Georgia, which are themselves popular auto transport locations in their own right.
