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.
Maryland is a densely populated state in a densely populated part of the country, so it is well served by interstate highways such as the I-68 and the I-95. Traffic in Maryland can be heavy, and good logistics and planning are especially important in Maryland trucking. Maryland’s adjacency to Washington DC has had a huge effect on its economy. Defense and biotech are important industries in Maryland, and Maryland produces both high tech products like electronics and chemicals and traditional products like coal and steel. FRC Logistics serves clients with a wide variety of specialized shipping requirements in the state of Maryland. For example, Maryland electronics companies may require temperature-controlled shipments of fragile electronic components, while Maryland steel fabricators sometimes need special provisions for over weight, over dimensional structural steel columns and girders.
Colorado to Maryland Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Colorado is mainly agricultural, and Maryland is mostly industrial, with many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer. We also see a number of flatbed shipments as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Colorado and Maryland 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.
