Save for one side of the city, Charleston is nearly an island located in the southern portion of South Carolina. In fact, with a population of around 100,000, it ranks 2nd in the entire state in population and is the largest city found in the South of the state. The Atlantic Ocean is located directly to the southeast of the city and brings the most significant climate concerns for Budget Auto Shipping in the form of severe tropical storms like hurricanes. In addition, hurricanes can directly strike the area from the North. The city of Charleston is largely bordered on the South by the Charleston Harbor and international shipments entering the area, although rare, can easily access Charleston and the surrounding cities through a variety of sea ports.
As Charleston is almost completely surrounded by water, the East and West sides of the city are accessible only through the use of three bridges, the Septima Clark Expressway, Savannah Highway and James Island Expressway. Some traffic delays can result during rush hour on these bridges because of the high traffic stress on only these three routes leading into the city from two sides. To the North of Charleston is North Charleston and easy city access made possible by Interstate 26.
