About Wisconsin

Wisconsin, located in the upper Midwest, has been inhabited by various native cultures for over 15,000 years, including the Oneota and Mississippian cultures. The French were likely the first Europeans to explore the area, and they named it Ouisconsin, altering the spelling of the Meskousing River. In the 19th century, English speakers changed the name to Wisconsin.

In 1783, after the American Revolution War, Wisconsin became a possession of the United States and was subsequently part of Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan territories. The growing population of the lands allowed Wisconsin to gain statehood in 1848 and then became the 30th state of the Union. Madison is the state’s capital, and Milwaukee is the largest city, metropolitan area, and economic hub.

The state is also known as “America’s Dairyland” due to its country’s leadership in dairy production, particularly in the cheese industry. Wisconsin is also famous for its historic Milwaukee beer. The state’s economy is dominated by healthcare, information technology, manufacturing, tourism, and agriculture. Wisconsin warehousing companies utilize the state’s location to serve many transportation companies’ needs.
