About Bradenton

Bradenton is a city located in Manatee County, Florida, on the Gulf Coast. It is known for its beautiful beaches, vibrant arts scene, and rich history. The city was founded in 1842 and was originally called "Bradentown" after Dr. Joseph Braden, a prominent local physician. In the late 19th century, Bradenton became a major hub for shipping and trade, thanks to its strategic location on the Manatee River. The river served as an important transportation route for goods and materials, and many warehouses and storage facilities were built along its banks.

Today, Bradenton continues to be a key player in the freight transportation industry. The city is home to the Port of Manatee, which is one of the largest deepwater seaports in the southeastern United States. The port handles a wide range of cargo, including containerized goods, bulk commodities, and breakbulk cargo. It is also a major hub for the shipment of automobiles, with several vehicle processing facilities located nearby.

In addition to its maritime transportation infrastructure, Bradenton is also well-connected by land. The city is served by several major highways, including Interstate 75 and US Route 41, which provide convenient access to other major cities in Florida and beyond. The nearby Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport also plays a crucial role in the transportation of goods, with numerous cargo carriers operating out of the airport.
