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.
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.
New Jersey to Montana Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since New Jersey is mainly industrial and Montana is mainly agricultural, with manufacturing and distribution centers throughout, we see plenty of shipments by Flatbed as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both New Jersey and Montana 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.
