Shipping in Wisconsin depends on state highways to move.

Trucks handle almost 90% of all freight tonnage shipped from Wisconsin, serving businesses and industries of all sizes and in all parts of the state. The state has a 113,000 mile network of state highways and local roads, including the 3,900 mile Corridors 2030 network of four-lane backbone and key connector routes.

The Wisconsin State Patrol conducts a variety of inspection and enforcement activities. Two key areas include the Size-Weight Enforcement Program to ensure that commercial carriers operate within statutory or permitted size and weight limitations; and the Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program to reduce the number and severity of crashes and hazardous material spills involving large trucks.

For all the information you need to work as a trucker in Wisconsin see our Motor carriers and trucks page.

Other information may be found in the Library, News or Travel information areas.
