Georgia, the Peach State, is on the Atlantic Ocean in the southeastern corner of the country. Its major metropolitan area, Atlanta, is the economic center of the southeast. The Blue Ridge Mountains, a mountain range in the Appalachian Mountain system, make up the northern part of the state, and the southern part of the state is a coastal plain. Along with the Atlantic Ocean, Georgia’s borders include Florida to the south, South Carolina to the east, Alabama to the west, and Tennessee and North Carolina to the north. Georgia is generally hot and humid in the summer and mild in the winter. It can be in the path of tropical storms or hurricanes during hurricane season (June 1 to November 30), and is occasionally affected by snow or ice in the winter. Georgia freight and shipping is concentrated in Atlanta and to a lesser degree, Savannah.
Arizona is one of the “four corners” states and home to the Grand Canyon. It shares one point with Colorado and borders New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and California. It also shares a 389-mile-long border with the country of Mexico. The southern part of the state is known for its desert climate, while the northern part has dense forests with variable weather. More than half of the state is made up of mountains, valleys and plateaus, with slightly over 12,500 feet between its highest and lowest points. The diverse climate and scenery draw an astounding number of people to the state each year, making tourism one of Arizona’s top industries. The Phoenix Metropolitan area is the most densely populated part of the state, and it is home to 65 percent of the state’s residents. Tucson and Flagstaff are also centers for Arizona freight and trucking.
Georgia to Arizona Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Georgia and Arizona Industries are more industrial than agricultural, with manufacturing and distribution centers throughout, we see plenty of shipments by Flatbed as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Atlanta, Georgia and Dallas, Texas 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.
