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.
No other state moves materials like Texas. Not only is Texas geographically the largest state in the continental United States, it also draws the most revenue from exports. Most of its major industries are in the natural resources, agricultural, and manufacturing sectors, which means that freight never stops flowing. We hear that Texas even takes cargo into orbit every once in a while. Texas spans seven major geographic regions ranging from sun-blasted deserts and hill country to semitropical coastal plains. Cities like Austin, Houston and Dallas dominate the state’s economy and consistently attract new businesses. Due to its size, shipping across the state is a taxing job, but Freight Rate Central’s trucking and freight team are more than up to the task. No matter the size of your order, we can move your cargo through Texas quickly and professionally.
New York to Texas Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since New York and Texas Industries are more industrial than 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 York and Texas 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.
