The ‘Empire State’ has an exceptional economic location for New York trucking companies, as it neighbors six states and a number of America’s most prosperous cities. It also shares a border with Canada’s economic centers: Toronto and Montreal. New York’s close proximity to major US cities has created a boom in the freight trucking industry, especially with routes to Cleveland, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cincinnati and Indianapolis, with their strong automotive, heavy manufacturing, publishing, printing, biomedical, biotechnology and telecommunications industries. Within the state itself, the major routes for New York freight companies are between New York City, Buffalo and Rochester. New York’s geography and climate creates unique challenges in terms of shipping. It has varied terrain with mountains, forests, valleys and lakes—and a number of microclimates. The great variance in weather, between humid summers and bitterly cold winters, poses further challenges, as do New York’s strict commercial shipping regulations.
Arizona is one of the “four corners” states and home to the Grand Canyon. It shares one point with Colorado and borders New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and California. It also shares a 389-mile-long border with the country of Mexico. The southern part of the state is known for its desert climate, while the northern part has dense forests with variable weather. More than half of the state is made up of mountains, valleys and plateaus, with slightly over 12,500 feet between its highest and lowest points. The diverse climate and scenery draw an astounding number of people to the state each year, making tourism one of Arizona’s top industries. The Phoenix Metropolitan area is the most densely populated part of the state, and it is home to 65 percent of the state’s residents. Tucson and Flagstaff are also centers for Arizona freight and trucking.
