North Dakota is currently enjoying a boom in natural resources, primarily oil extraction, and has enjoyed the fastest-growing economy in the USA for the last five years. As well as the oil industry, agriculture, mineral extraction and food processing are key industries. The flat prairie land and climate are ideal for growing legumes, oilseeds and cereal crops. Machinery, particularly for use in mineral extraction and farming, is routinely transported along North Dakota’s road network.
Thanks in part to its high elevation, Colorado’s weather patterns are largely dictated by the terrain of mountains and valleys, as well as arid plains. Its climate is generally semi-arid, with an alpine climate in the high mountains. Extreme weather is not uncommon, with heavy hailstorms and thunderstorms. Wildfires have become an increasingly severe problem, thanks to prolonged high temperatures and droughts in the plains.
The I-70 cuts across Colorado from east to west. Colorado trucking companies frequently carry goods along this route internally, connecting Fort Collins to Pueblo via Denver and Boulder. Colorado freight companies traveling east to west on I-70 (or northwest on I-76) also travel through the state capital of Denver in transit between Utah and Kansas. Colorado is well served by a network of state roads cutting through forests and the Rocky Mountains.
North Dakota to Colorado Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since North Dakota is mostly industrial, and Colorado is mostly agricultural, with many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer. We also see a number of flatbed shipments as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both North Dakota and Colorado 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.
