West Virginia Car Shipping
West Virginia, being located in the Appalachian, Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions of the United States, is bordered by Pennsylvania to the northeast, Maryland to the east and northeast, Virginia to the southeast, Kentucky to the southwest, and Ohio to the northwest. It is the 41st-largest state by area and ranks 38th in population. The capital and largest city is Charleston.
The state is noted for its mountains and rolling hills, its historically significant logging and coal mining industries.
The capital was originally Wheeling, before switching to Charleston, moving back to Wheeling, and finally back to Charleston.
Located in the Appalachian Mountain range, West Virginia covers an area of 24,229.76 square miles, with 24,077.73 square miles of land and 152.03 square miles of water, making it the 41st-largest state in the United States.
West Virginia is located entirely within the Appalachian Region, and the state is almost entirely mountainous, giving reason to the nickname The Mountain State and the motto “Montani Semper Liberi”, which means “Mountaineers are always free”.
The climate of West Virginia is generally a humid subtropical climate with warm to hot, humid summers and chilly winters, increasing in severity with elevation.
What is interesting to know, is that highways form the backbone of transportation systems in West Virginia, with over 37,300 miles of public roads in the state. All but Charleston and Huntington are subsidized by the federal Department of Transportation’s Essential Air Service program.
Because of the mountainous nature of the entire state, West Virginia has several notable tunnels and bridges. The most famous of these is the New River Gorge Bridge, which was at a time the longest steel single-arch bridge in the world with a 3,031-foot span. The Wheeling Suspension Bridge was the first bridge built across the Ohio River in 1849 and for a time was the longest suspension bridge in the world. It is still the oldest vehicular suspension bridge in the United States still in use.
This is why we, as one of the biggest car shipping companies, are very excited to work on the transport of many types of vehicles going to and from the state. Anyone having a general idea of how vehicle shipping is processed knows how much impact the weather or road conditions might have on it. Vehicle transport is an exciting and challenging business and having it arranged within this kind of area makes it even more interesting and Tempus Logix team is referring to it with huge responsibility.
