North Carolina is known for its pioneering efforts in building railroads, seaports, and airlines. Between 1800 and 1837, North Carolina sponsored and owned the longest span of railroad in the world; this developed into the statewide system known today, with larger systems extending into other regions of the United States for both passenger and freight transport. Additionally, the state's ports are handling the ever-increasing import and export tonnage of industrial products along the eastern seaboard. Further, air transport in North Carolina is now fed by six lines, with large centers in several regions of the state.
