About Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, known as the "Steel City," has a rich history in the transportation industry. In the 19th century, Pittsburgh became a major hub for the transportation of goods due to its strategic location at the confluence of three major rivers - the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio. This made it an ideal location for the transportation of goods by river, and Pittsburgh quickly became a key center for the shipping and receiving of freight.

One of the most iconic features of Pittsburgh's transportation history is its extensive network of bridges. With over 446 bridges, Pittsburgh has more bridges than any other city in the world, including famous landmarks such as the Roberto Clemente Bridge and the Andy Warhol Bridge. These bridges played a crucial role in the transportation of goods, allowing for the movement of freight across the rivers and connecting different parts of the city.

Today, Pittsburgh continues to be a major transportation hub, with a diverse range of freight transportation options. The city is home to several major railroads, including Norfolk Southern and CSX, which provide freight transportation services to businesses in the region. Additionally, Pittsburgh is served by several major highways, including Interstate 76 and Interstate 79, making it easily accessible for trucking companies and allowing for the efficient movement of goods by road.
