Georgia, the Peach State, is on the Atlantic Ocean in the southeastern corner of the country. Its major metropolitan area, Atlanta, is the economic center of the southeast. The Blue Ridge Mountains, a mountain range in the Appalachian Mountain system, make up the northern part of the state, and the southern part of the state is a coastal plain. Along with the Atlantic Ocean, Georgia’s borders include Florida to the south, South Carolina to the east, Alabama to the west, and Tennessee and North Carolina to the north. Georgia is generally hot and humid in the summer and mild in the winter. It can be in the path of tropical storms or hurricanes during hurricane season (June 1 to November 30), and is occasionally affected by snow or ice in the winter. Georgia freight and shipping is concentrated in Atlanta and to a lesser degree, Savannah.
Thanks in part to its high elevation, Colorado’s weather patterns are largely dictated by the terrain of mountains and valleys, as well as arid plains. Its climate is generally semi-arid, with an alpine climate in the high mountains. Extreme weather is not uncommon, with heavy hailstorms and thunderstorms. Wildfires have become an increasingly severe problem, thanks to prolonged high temperatures and droughts in the plains.
The I-70 cuts across Colorado from east to west. Colorado trucking companies frequently carry goods along this route internally, connecting Fort Collins to Pueblo via Denver and Boulder. Colorado freight companies traveling east to west on I-70 (or northwest on I-76) also travel through the state capital of Denver in transit between Utah and Kansas. Colorado is well served by a network of state roads cutting through forests and the Rocky Mountains.
Colorado to Georgia Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Colorado is more agricultural, with manufacturing and distribution centers throughout, and both Colorado and Georgia are both industrial, we see plenty of shipments by Flatbed as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Colorado and Georgia 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.
