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.
From the Gulf of Mexico to the Appalachian Mountains and from forests to factory farms, Alabama’s landscape is as diverse as its population. Because it is a southern state, ice and snow are seldom concerns in Alabama shipping. However, the summers can be dangerously hot and the storms can be extreme. Thunderstorms and tropical storms are common, especially in the southern part of the state, and hurricanes and tornados can also be hazards in Alabama freight shipping. The southern end of the Appalachian Mountain chain can be found in the northeastern part of Alabama and can pose shipping challenges, as well.
North Dakota to Alabama Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since North Dakota is mostly industrial, and Alabama is mostly agricultural, with many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer.

Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both North Dakota and Alabama 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.
