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.
Almost all of Utah’s nearly three million inhabitants live among the valleys of the Wasatch Front. As a result, much of the state is largely uninhabited and unspoiled. To the west of the I-15, the landscape is broadly desert. To the south and east, the soft sandstone has been etched by wind and weather over time to form stunning natural sculptures. Dotted throughout the state are pine forests, valleys and basins.
The climate is semi-arid or desert, with moisture coming chiefly from Pacific Ocean storms or Gulf of California monsoons. Winter inversions are common, especially around the basins, causing haze and freezing fog. Tornados are unusual, but wildfires are increasingly common due to the high summer temperatures and dry climate.
North Dakota to Utah Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since North Dakota and Utah are mostly industrial, 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 Utah 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.
