Port of Chicago

Known all over the world for its multiculturalism, Chicago is comprised of 77 distinct neighborhoods with a total population of 2.7 million residents. As Chicago is clearly a critical hub for American commerce, iContainers offers freight forwarding services to and from the Port of Chicago.

Chicago is the largest inland general cargo port in America . As well as being the largest, Chicago is also the nation’s most inland general cargo port. The port supports 6,923 jobs within the region by moving 19 million tons of essential raw materials and manufactured products through the port of Chicago annually. Ocean freight shipping saves companies an estimated $3.6 billion a year in transportation costs compared to next least-costly land based alternative. These savings make the Port of Chicago a fantastic port for freight forwarding to or from the Midwest.

The Port of Chicago has been allocated $500 million over the next 10 years in order to improve the Port’s infrastructure, creating up to 1,000 new jobs. This investment is crucial to the continuing viability of the port, as it has not seen any investment in physical port facilities since 1981.
