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.
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
Colorado to Ohio Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Colorado is mainly agricultural and Ohio is mainly an industrial state, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer, flatbed as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Heavy Haul Trucking services are also common from Colorado to Ohio. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers 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.
