Portland Auto Shipping
Portland is a city located in as well as the county seat of Multnomah County, Oregon, and according to an official estimate conducted by the US Census Bureau in 2008 the population of the city was over 575,000; this makes it the largest city in the entire state of Oregon as well as the 29th largest city in the United States. It’s easy to arrange Portland auto shipping.
Portland was originally founded by a man named William Overton in 1851, and at the time Overton simply called the area that would become Portland “The Clearing.” Overton envisioned a sprawling city with great commercial value, due to its location on the Columbia River, and his vision did not go unseen – by 1852 the population of the city was over 800 and incorporated as a city. Until Seattle was connected by rail to the rest of the United States, Portland was the only major port in the entire Pacific Northwest. Today, the city is known for its great city planning as well as its use of light rail mass transit, which is owned by Tri-Met.
During the summer, highs in the city typically reach into the low 80’s, though higher temperatures are not wholly uncommon. Overnight lows during the summer typically drop down into the upper 50’s, while winter highs reach into the mid-to-upper 40’s and lows drop down into the low 30’s overnight.
