New Jersey’s state motto, “liberty and prosperity,” describes this second-wealthiest of the 50 US states well. The Garden State’s warm, humid summers, temperate spring and fall seasons and snowy winters help foster the rural agricultural areas that lie between metropolitan New York City to the north, Philadelphia to the south and the famous Jersey Shore along the Atlantic Ocean to the east. New Jersey’s largest cities are Newark, Jersey City and Patterson. State capitol Trenton’s motto, “Trenton makes, the world takes,” sums up New Jersey’s welcoming attitude toward commerce.
California is a large, densely populated state, especially along the Pacific Coast where the San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego metropolitan areas link northern, central and southern California. For the most part, California has a pleasant and mild climate. It’s hotter and drier in the south, and the north is colder in the winter and wetter in the summer. With mountains in the east and hills in the west, along the coast, it’s is a beautiful state to drive through, but it can be demanding for California truckers. Many truckers would say that California’s greatest challenges lie in its diesel regulations and traffic congestion.
New Jersey to California Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since New Jersey is mainly industrial, and California is more agricultural, with many manufacturing and distribution centers throughout, we see plenty of shipments by Flatbed as well as by Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers. Our more common dry van trucks in both New Jersey and California 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.
