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.

California is a large, densely populated state, especially along the Pacific Coast where the San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego metropolitan areas link northern, central and southern California. For the most part, California has a pleasant and mild climate. It’s hotter and drier in the south, and the north is colder in the winter and wetter in the summer. With mountains in the east and hills in the west, along the coast, it’s is a beautiful state to drive through, but it can be demanding for California truckers. Many truckers would say that California’s greatest challenges lie in its diesel regulations and traffic congestion.
North Dakota to California Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs.
