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.

No other state moves materials like Texas. Not only is Texas geographically the largest state in the continental United States, it also draws the most revenue from exports. Most of its major industries are in the natural resources, agricultural, and manufacturing sectors, which means that freight never stops flowing. We hear that Texas even takes cargo into orbit every once in a while. Texas spans seven major geographic regions ranging from sun-blasted deserts and hill country to semitropical coastal plains. Cities like Austin, Houston and Dallas dominate the state’s economy and consistently attract new businesses. Due to its size, shipping across the state is a taxing job, but Freight Rate Central’s trucking and freight team are more than up to the task. No matter the size of your order, we can move your cargo through Texas quickly and professionally.
Pennsylvania to Texas Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates 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 Texas 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.
