Straddling three regions of the country—east coast, midwest and south—Pennsylvania borders New York and New Jersey to the north and east, Ohio and Lake Erie to the west and Delaware, Maryland and West Virginia to the south. Philadelphia is Pennsylvania’s largest city and Pittsburgh is a distant second; both cities are known as twentieth century industrial powerhouses and are charging into the twenty-first century with knowledge and service-based economies.
In addition to Lake Erie, the Delaware Estuary and Delaware River are important bodies of water in Pennsylvania. From the Appalachian Mountains to the Allegheny Plateau, Ridge and Valley to the Atlantic Coastal Plain through Piedmont and the Erie Plain, Pennsylvania has a varied landscape that supports farming, manufacturing, development and tourism.
Oregon has a rocky coast along the Pacific Ocean, waterfalls, dense rainforests, the volcanic Cascade Mountains, and prairies, steppes and high deserts that sweep to the eastern border. Around 70 percent of the state’s population is concentrated in the Willamette Valley, which boasts cities like Portland to the north and Eugene to the south, and the western part of the state has a mild year-round climate featuring cool, wet winters and dry, warm summers. Further to the east, the winters are cold and snowy. Oregon is south of Washington State and north of California. To the east, it is bordered by Idaho and Nevada.
Since Pennsylvania and Oregon are mainly industrial, with many food processing and distribution centers, trucking rates will vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. We see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer, flatbed trailer as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Pennsylvania and Oregon 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.
