A Brief History of Pennsylvania
- Originally controlled by the Dutch, the area that would become Pennsylvania was wrested from them by the British in the mid 17th century and subsequently colonized by British colonists not long after. The state has played a major role in the formation of the United States, with Philadelphia especially the site of many monuments and important historical moments, including a stint as the first capital of the U.S., the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the site of the first and Second Continental Congress…the list goes on. Pennsylvania too was one of the first colonies to print its own money in response to the Currency Act of 1764, and its system has been lauded as being a major step in turning the minds of native Pennsylvanians against the British at the time.

What to Expect when Shipping to or from Pennsylvania
- With so much history behind it, it’s not surprising that there are several different major metropolitan areas scattered across the state of Pennsylvania, and it really does help that almost all of them are connected by the Interstate Highway System. The two major interstates that run east-west through Pennsylvania are I-80 (in the north) and I-70 (in the south), and these are two of the longest and most-traveled interstates in the country. In terms of north-south interstates, the most important is perhap I-95, which runs from Miami to Maine and passes through Philadelphia; there is also I-81 and I-83, which service areas just southwest of Philadelphia, as well as I-79, a north-south interstate that services western Pennsylvania. During the winter months prices may be slightly higher due to the fact that weather is much more harsh, but on the whole your prices should be fairly low and competitive due to the vast number of routes that carriers can use to get around the state.
