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.
The ‘Empire State’ has an exceptional economic location for New York trucking companies, as it neighbors six states and a number of America’s most prosperous cities. It also shares a border with Canada’s economic centers: Toronto and Montreal. New York’s close proximity to major US cities has created a boom in the freight trucking industry, especially with routes to Cleveland, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cincinnati and Indianapolis, with their strong automotive, heavy manufacturing, publishing, printing, biomedical, biotechnology and telecommunications industries. Within the state itself, the major routes for New York freight companies are between New York City, Buffalo and Rochester. New York’s geography and climate creates unique challenges in terms of shipping. It has varied terrain with mountains, forests, valleys and lakes—and a number of microclimates. The great variance in weather, between humid summers and bitterly cold winters, poses further challenges, as do New York’s strict commercial shipping regulations.
