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.
Straddling three regions of the country—east coast, midwest and south—Pennsylvania borders New York and New Jersey to the north and east, Ohio and Lake Erie to the west and Delaware, Maryland and West Virginia to the south. Philadelphia is Pennsylvania’s largest city and Pittsburgh is a distant second; both cities are known as twentieth century industrial powerhouses and are charging into the twenty-first century with knowledge and service-based economies.
In addition to Lake Erie, the Delaware Estuary and Delaware River are important bodies of water in Pennsylvania. From the Appalachian Mountains to the Allegheny Plateau, Ridge and Valley to the Atlantic Coastal Plain through Piedmont and the Erie Plain, Pennsylvania has a varied landscape that supports farming, manufacturing, development and tourism.
Georgia to Pennsylvania Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Georgia is mainly agricultural, and Pennsylvania is mainly 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 Georgia and Pennsylvania 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.
