Class of business
Choose Freedom Heavy Haul to haul your heavy equipment between Connecticut and any other state in the union. Connecticut relies largely upon services industries to fund its economy. The financial services industry once accounted for more than 15% of the stateâ€™s economic output. With the exodus of many large insurance and investment companies, the financial industryâ€™s effect on the stateâ€™s economy has declined. However, the construction industry remains strong. More than 7 million people are employed in construction in Connecticut. The state has nearly 8,000 construction contractors. With such a robust industry, the need for the transport of heavy construction equipment remains high. Connecticut also does a lot of manufacturing. United Technologies employs tens of thousands of people in the state, while Lockheed manufactures helicopters in Stratford. General Dynamics builds submarines in Groton. The state is a hotbed for the transportation of heavy machinery and equipment. Connecticut operates three major ports:
Connecticut is the third smallest state in the country in terms of acreage, larger than only Delaware and Rhode Island. Connecticut has more than 45,000 miles or roadways, comparable to the miles of roads in Maine. Less than 400 miles of roads in the state consist of interstate highway. I-95, the busiest interstate in America, runs up the eastern coast of the state, connecting New York and Rhode Island. Slightly to the north, I-84 parallels I-95 as it runs through Hartford. I-91 goes north/south through Hartford as it runs between New Haven and the Massachusetts border.
Despite its size, Connecticut has the 29th largest population among US states. The five largest towns have between 100,000 and 15,000 residents each. While the state is generally losing population, Danbury is among the fastest growing cities in Connecticut. The 10 largest cities in Connecticut are:

Maximum weight: 80,000 Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW);
