California to Texas Freight shipping and trucking services are in high demand; Los Angeles to Houston is a very heavily traveled route for freight transportation.
The Los Angeles to Houston shipping lane is a 1,545 mile haul that takes more than 22 hours of driving to complete. Shipping from California to Texas ranges from a minimum of 1,354 miles and 20 hours from Los Angeles, CA to San Antonio, TX to over 1,932 miles and a minimum of 27 hours on the road from Sacramento, CA to Houston, TX. The shortest route from California to Texas is along I-10 E through Phoenix, AZ; however, there’s also a more northern route that uses I-40 E passing through Albuquerque, NM rather than San Antonio, TX.
California is a large, densely populated state, especially along the Pacific Coast where the San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego metropolitan areas link northern, central and southern California. For the most part, California has a pleasant and mild climate. It’s hotter and drier in the south, and the north is colder in the winter and wetter in the summer. With mountains in the east and hills in the west, along the coast, it’s is a beautiful state to drive through, but it can be demanding for California truckers. Many truckers would say that California’s greatest challenges lie in its diesel regulations and traffic congestion.
No other state moves materials like Texas. Not only is Texas geographically the largest state in the continental United States, it also draws the most revenue from exports. Most of its major industries are in the natural resources, agricultural, and manufacturing sectors, which means that freight never stops flowing. We hear that Texas even takes cargo into orbit every once in a while. Texas spans seven major geographic regions ranging from sun-blasted deserts and hill country to semitropical coastal plains. Cities like Austin, Houston and Dallas dominate the state’s economy and consistently attract new businesses. Due to its size, shipping across the state is a taxing job, but Freight Rate Central’s trucking and freight team are more than up to the task. No matter the size of your order, we can move your cargo through Texas quickly and professionally.
California to Texas Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since the Interstate running from California to Texas crosses through several states, it is an excellent route to serve all the agricultural and industrial areas. With many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer, flatbed as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Heavy Hauling Trucking services are also a hot commodity from LA to Houston. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Texas and California 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.
