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.
Washington State’s nickname, “The Evergreen State,” doesn’t do justice to the vast geography of this Pacific Northwestern state. Although lush rainforests do flourish in the central part of the state, glaciers, islands and fjords are part of the state’s Pacific Coast landscape, while the Cascade Mountain range is found in the drier, eastern area. Likewise, the rain that the Washington’s most populous city, Seattle, is known for is not typical of the whole state. A dry, semi-arid climate is found in the east, while the mountains are known for deep snows in the winter that make snow chains a November to April requirement for trucking and freight services operating in Washington State. Washington freight and shipping is concentrated in Seattle and along the coast, and Spokane is a smaller center for Washington freight and trucking.
New Jersey to Washington Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since New Jersey is mainly industrial, and Washington is mainly 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 Washington 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.
