About Fort Wayne

Fort Wayne is the second-largest city in Indiana, located in the northeastern part of the state. The city was founded in 1794 by a United States Army captain named Jean François Hamtramck, and it was named after General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, a Revolutionary War hero. Fort Wayne played a significant role in the transportation of goods during the 19th century. It was a hub for the Wabash and Erie Canal, which connected the Great Lakes to the Ohio River and allowed for the transportation of goods and people across the region. The canal was an important mode of transportation for freight, especially before the advent of railroads.

Today, Fort Wayne continues to be a major transportation hub in the Midwest. The city is served by several major highways, including Interstate 69, which connects Fort Wayne to Indianapolis and other major cities in the region. Fort Wayne International Airport is also a key transportation facility, offering both passenger and cargo services. The city is strategically located within a day's drive of two-thirds of the United States population, making it an ideal location for businesses involved in freight transportation. The city's transportation infrastructure and central location have contributed to its economic growth and development.
