West Virginia State
West Virginia is what most folks love calling the Mountain State. It’s a highland area characterized by the Appalachian Mountains. Its elevation; about 1,500 feet above sea level, makes it the highest state east of the Mississippi River. The Ohio River flows over most of the state’s length, offering an alternative means of transport; water. A-1 Auto Transport Inc. offers safe & reliable West Virginia shipping services through ocean freight.
The Ohio River
It’s the largest tributary to the Great Mississippi River. It cuts across Huntington, WV, from which the largest inland port in the US was formed; the Port of Huntington-Tristate. The river port acts as an alternative means of transport, especially for heavy cargo. This creates an opportunity for shipping cars to or from Port of Huntington-Tristate.
What makes the river port conducive?
The Port of Huntington-Tristate is managed by the Members of the Huntington District Waterways Association (HDWA). It covers 100 miles of the Ohio River, stretching from near Portsmouth to the northern boundary of Gallia County, then down 90 miles of the Kanawha plus another 9 miles of the Big Sandy. The vastness of the port offers a 100-mile long leeway for transportation, whose main aim is decongesting traffic from the highway roads of the Tristate.
The port serves as an alternative means of shipping heavy loads such as coal, petroleum, chemicals, and vehicles. Shipping vehicles by road is a rather costly endeavor compared to shipping through a cargo ship. This is because long-haul trucks don’t offer cost-pooling like cargo ships do.
Perks of the Port
Shipping cars to or from Port of Huntington-Tristate is cheaper especially if it includes shipping from West Virginia to neighboring cities that the Ohio River crosses. The port is characterized by the same state-of-the-art port equipment found in other Sea Ports. The Ro-ro equipment, mobile cranes, offshore piling equipment, and heavy tonnage cranes all come in handy, enabling the port to offer containerized, roll-on/roll-off, terminal – terminal and door to door car shipping services.
