Arizona is one of the “four corners” states and home to the Grand Canyon. It shares one point with Colorado and borders New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and California. It also shares a 389-mile-long border with the country of Mexico. The southern part of the state is known for its desert climate, while the northern part has dense forests with variable weather. More than half of the state is made up of mountains, valleys and plateaus, with slightly over 12,500 feet between its highest and lowest points. The diverse climate and scenery draw an astounding number of people to the state each year, making tourism one of Arizona’s top industries. The Phoenix Metropolitan area is the most densely populated part of the state, and it is home to 65 percent of the state’s residents. Tucson and Flagstaff are also centers for Arizona freight and trucking.
One of America’s foremost agricultural states, Idaho is sparsely populated, but well connected. Bordered by Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Canada, the major cities of Idaho Falls and Boise are situated in the south-east and south-west of the state.
Despite its landlocked position, western Idaho has a primarily maritime climate, tempering the potential severity of the winter weather in this northern state. The south and east of the state have a semi-arid climate, similar to that of central states on the plains. Most of Idaho, particularly its center, is covered by forest. The major road networks serve the far south, north and east of the state, with the center and west relying primarily on state road networks.
Arizona to Idaho Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Arizona is mainly industrial, and Idaho is mainly agricultural, with many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer. We also see a number of flatbed shipments as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Arizona and Idaho are also running a number of regular services between the two states, and it’s an active route for heavy haul freight shipments, as well.
