Connecticut Shipping FAQs

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 state’s economic output. With the exodus of many large insurance and investment companies, the financial industry’s effect on the state’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:
