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.
Washington State’s nickname, “The Evergreen State,” doesn’t do justice to the vast geography of this Pacific Northwestern state. Although lush rainforests do flourish in the central part of the state, glaciers, islands and fjords are part of the state’s Pacific Coast landscape, while the Cascade Mountain range is found in the drier, eastern area. Likewise, the rain that the Washington’s most populous city, Seattle, is known for is not typical of the whole state. A dry, semi-arid climate is found in the east, while the mountains are known for deep snows in the winter that make snow chains a November to April requirement for trucking and freight services operating in Washington State. Washington freight and shipping is concentrated in Seattle and along the coast, and Spokane is a smaller center for Washington freight and trucking.
