Colorado to Nevada Freight shipping and trucking services are in high demand; Denver to Reno is a very heavily traveled route.
The Denver, CO to Reno, NV shipping lane is a 991 mile haul that takes more than 15 hours of driving to complete. Shipping from Colorado to Nevada ranges from a minimum of 418 miles and a minimum of 6 hours on the road from Dolores, CO to Mesquite, NV, to over 1,236 miles and a minimum of 19 hours on the road from Campo, CO to Denio, NV. The shortest route from Colorado to Nevada is along the I-70 W corridor; however there is a more northerly route that uses the I-80 W, traveling through Salt Lake City, UT instead of Grand Junction, CO.
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.
Nevada trades in fantasy, but that’s not all. Down-to-earth industries like mining and ranching play an important role in the state’s economy. Of course, government shipping is also in high demand in Nevada. As a state that is dry and sparsely populated, Nevada’s shipping needs tend to be straightforward.

Colorado to Nevada Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Colorado is mainly agricultural, and Nevada 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 Nevada 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.
