Just north of the Alabama state center, Northport is a mid-sized city serving as home to 24,088 residents as of 2012. Northport is similar to Florence in that it serves as a major crossing point for the Black Warrior River. The much larger Tuscaloosa lies in the south, accessible through only the Lurleen B Wallace Blvd and McFarland Blvd NE river crossings. Once across, however, auto shipping haulers can connect with major Interstates 359, 59, and 20. This makes Northport a very easy city to access from an infrastructural point of view. Shipping from Northport is typically accomplished by traveling through Birmingham first and continuing to destinations north or east. The city of Northport covers an approximate area of 14.8 square miles.
As many residents of Northport work in Tuscaloosa, auto shipping for job transfers to either city is a common request. More than a quarter of the working population of Tuscaloosa work in federal, state, and local government agencies. Heavy commuter traffic can cause delays on the pair of crossings over the Black Warrior River, but backups usually clear quickly. The steadily increasing population of Northport (increasing every census year since 1900) may make auto shipping in Northport more common.
