One of America’s foremost agricultural states, Idaho is sparsely populated, but well connected. Bordered by Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Canada, the major cities of Idaho Falls and Boise are situated in the south-east and south-west of the state.
Despite its landlocked position, western Idaho has a primarily maritime climate, tempering the potential severity of the winter weather in this northern state. The south and east of the state have a semi-arid climate, similar to that of central states on the plains. Most of Idaho, particularly its center, is covered by forest. The major road networks serve the far south, north and east of the state, with the center and west relying primarily on state road networks.
Nevada trades in fantasy, but that’s not all. Down-to-earth industries like mining and ranching play an important role in the state’s economy.

Idaho to Nevada Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Idaho is mainly agricultural, and Nevada is mostly 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 Idaho and Nevada 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.
