About Evanston

Evanston is a city located in Cook County, Illinois, just north of Chicago. It is known for its beautiful lakefront, vibrant downtown area, and prestigious Northwestern University. However, what many people may not know is that Evanston has a rich history in freight transportation.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Evanston was a key transportation hub for the Chicago and North Western Railway. The city had multiple rail lines running through it, connecting it to other major cities and facilitating the transportation of goods. The railway played a crucial role in the growth and development of Evanston, allowing for the efficient movement of freight and enabling businesses to thrive.

Today, while the railway may not be as prominent in Evanston as it once was, the city still benefits from its strategic location. It is located near major highways and interstates, making it a convenient hub for freight transportation. Additionally, Evanston is home to several logistics and transportation companies, further contributing to its role in the industry.
