From the Gulf of Mexico to the Appalachian Mountains and from forests to factory farms, Alabama’s landscape is as diverse as its population. Because it is a southern state, ice and snow are seldom concerns in Alabama shipping. However, the summers can be dangerously hot and the storms can be extreme. Thunderstorms and tropical storms are common, especially in the southern part of the state, and hurricanes and tornados can also be hazards in Alabama freight shipping. The southern end of the Appalachian Mountain chain can be found in the northeastern part of Alabama and can pose shipping challenges, as well.
Thanks in part to its high elevation, Colorado’s weather patterns are largely dictated by the terrain of mountains and valleys, as well as arid plains. Its climate is generally semi-arid, with an alpine climate in the high mountains. Extreme weather is not uncommon, with heavy hailstorms and thunderstorms. Wildfires have become an increasingly severe problem, thanks to prolonged high temperatures and droughts in the plains.
The I-70 cuts across Colorado from east to west. Colorado trucking companies frequently carry goods along this route internally, connecting Fort Collins to Pueblo via Denver and Boulder. Colorado freight companies traveling east to west on I-70 (or northwest on I-76) also travel through the state capital of Denver in transit between Utah and Kansas. Colorado is well served by a network of state roads cutting through forests and the Rocky Mountains.
Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates for Alabama to Colorado vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Alabama and Colorado are mainly agricultural, having many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer, flatbed trailers, as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers are also running a number of regular services between Alabama and Colorado, and it’s an active route for heavy haul freight shipments, as well.
