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.
Michigan, the Great Lakes State, is made up of two peninsulas surrounded by the world’s largest freshwater lakes. Southeast Michigan, the most densely populated part of the state, is home to the Detroit Metro Area and the American automotive industry. Further north, there’s lumber, mining and furniture manufacturing. Michigan borders Ontario, Canada to the east and north, across lakes Huron and Superior. Indiana and Ohio are to the south, and Illinois and Wisconsin are to the west, across Lake Michigan. Detroit is approximately 300 miles east of Chicago and 250 miles west of Toronto, Canada. Michigan is warm and humid in the summer, cold and snowy in the winter. Michigan’s climate sometimes causes delays in trucking.
New Jersey to Michigan Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since New Jersey and Michigan are both mainly industrial states, 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 Michigan 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.
