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.

California to Florida Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since New York is mainly industrial and Florida is largely agricultural but industrial as well, 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 Miami. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Florida 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.
