Shipments of goods that may have begun their journey on another continent will travel over several of Alabama’s 210,531 miles of roadway, or 3,300 miles of the State’s railways to their destination. Alabama is a hub of activity for freight. In fact, despite the recent pandemic, shipping volume through the Port of Mobile processed 563,191 TEUs (20-foot-long containers) in 2022, a gain of 11.3% over the previous year. As for trucking, nearly 287 million tons of foreign and domestic shipments flowed within and from the State in recent years. Trucking is Alabama’s dominant freight transport mode, moving more than 80% of all goods into or from the State.

Labor Loop, which provides experienced ‘by-the-job’ staffers, wants to partner with your business to assist in the efficiency of your supply chain as well as to reduce your overhead costs.
