Named after the Spanish for “mountainous country,” Montana contains numerous mountain ranges, many of which form part of the Rocky Mountains in the west of the state. Its unofficial nickname, Big Sky Country, refers to the huge expanses of flat open plains in the eastern part of Montana, which provide fertile ground for agriculture and ranching and cover 60% of the state’s territory.
The major cities of Montana include Missoula to the east, Billings in the south and Great Falls. State capital Helena, Butte and Bozeman are also major population centers. Thanks to its size, geography and the Continental Divide, the weather in Montana can vary dramatically. The coldest temperature ever recorded in the US was in Montana (-70ºF) and the valleys and mountains can attract fog that is difficult for even experienced Montana trucking companies to navigate.
Almost Home of the Mighty Buckeyes, Ohio links the northeast to the midwest and contains some of the busiest trucking routes in the country. Ohio is within a one-day drive of 50 percent of US residents and 70 percent of North America’s manufacturing capacity. Bordered to the north by Lake Erie, an important cargo port area and to the south by the Ohio River, Ohio’s nearest neighbors are Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ontario, Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia.
Ohio’s climate ranges from mild to the south to cooler to the north, where severe lake effect snowstorms are not uncommon in the winter, making travel in the north treacherous during the worst parts of the winter. Major cities include Ohio’s capitol, Columbus, along with Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, Dayton and Akron

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.
