No other state moves materials like Texas. Not only is Texas geographically the largest state in the continental United States, it also draws the most revenue from exports. Most of its major industries are in the natural resources, agricultural, and manufacturing sectors, which means that freight never stops flowing.

Cities like Austin, Houston and Dallas dominate the state’s economy and consistently attract new businesses.
