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.
Florida is a state that has an incredibly long coastline with many islands and peninsulas. Most of the state has a sub-tropical climate, with temperatures that often top 100° F in the summer. Most major shipping and trucking delays in Florida are related to hurricanes and tropical storms, which regularly affect various part of the state, especially on the east coast. Look out for hurricanes and tropical storms from June through November. Florida’s largest cities, all with populations of over a million in their metropolitans areas, are Miami, Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville. However, Florida has many medium-sized cities and industrial areas along its coasts; shipping tends to be distributed over a large area in Florida.
New Jersey to Florida Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since New Jersey is mainly industrial and Florida is largely agricultural, with many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer, flatbed as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both New Jersey and Florida 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.
