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.
Almost Home of the Mighty Buckeyes, Ohio links the northeast to the midwest and contains some of the busiest trucking routes in the country. Ohio is within a one-day drive of 50 percent of US residents and 70 percent of North America’s manufacturing capacity. Bordered to the north by Lake Erie, an important cargo port area and to the south by the Ohio River, Ohio’s nearest neighbors are Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ontario, Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia.
Ohio’s climate ranges from mild to the south to cooler to the north, where severe lake effect snowstorms are not uncommon in the winter, making travel in the north treacherous during the worst parts of the winter. Major cities include Ohio’s capitol, Columbus, along with Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, Dayton and Akron
California to Ohio Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since California is largely agricultural, with many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer, and with Ohio being mostly industrial we see flatbed trailer as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Heavy Hauling Trucking services are also common from LA to Detroit. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both California and New York 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.
