Florida is a state that has an incredibly long coastline with many islands and peninsulas. Most of the state has a sub-tropical climate, with temperatures that often top 100° F in the summer. Most major shipping and trucking delays in Florida are related to hurricanes and tropical storms, which regularly affect various part of the state, especially on the east coast. Look out for hurricanes and tropical storms from June through November. Florida’s largest cities, all with populations of over a million in their metropolitans areas, are Miami, Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville. However, Florida has many medium-sized cities and industrial areas along its coasts; shipping tends to be distributed over a large area in Florida.
Almost all of Utah’s nearly three million inhabitants live among the valleys of the Wasatch Front. As a result, much of the state is largely uninhabited and unspoiled. To the west of the I-15, the landscape is broadly desert. To the south and east, the soft sandstone has been etched by wind and weather over time to form stunning natural sculptures. Dotted throughout the state are pine forests, valleys and basins.
The climate is semi-arid or desert, with moisture coming chiefly from Pacific Ocean storms or Gulf of California monsoons. Winter inversions are common, especially around the basins, causing haze and freezing fog. Tornados are unusual, but wildfires are increasingly common due to the high summer temperatures and dry climate.
Florida to Utah Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Florida is mainly agricultural and Utah is mainly industrial, 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 Florida to Utah. 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.
