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 Nevada Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since California is mainly agricultural and Nevada is mostly industrial, with many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer.
