The heart of the Old South, South Carolina is amazingly diverse for a state that ranks 40th in size in the US. The Blue Ridge Mountains delineate South Carolina’s northwest boundaries with North Carolina and Georgia. The Piedmont region is rolling hills, the aptly named Sand hills region is in the central part of the state, and the Outer and Inner Coastal Plains sweep to the Atlantic Ocean. South Carolina’s state capital, Columbia, is its largest city, with coastal Charleston coming in second. South Carolina’s diversity extends to the state’s climate. Summers are uniformly hot, but its coastal areas have mild winters, while the inland and upland areas of South Carolina see cooler winters with freezing rain and occasional snow. Freezing rain can make conditions hazardous for travel in the winter; bridges in the state are often marked “bridges freeze before roadways” for this reason. Tropical storms and spring rains are also common, although the state sees less hurricane and cyclone conditions than nearby North Carolina.
One of America’s foremost agricultural states, Idaho is sparsely populated, but well connected. Bordered by Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Canada, the major cities of Idaho Falls and Boise are situated in the south-east and south-west of the state.
Despite its landlocked position, western Idaho has a primarily maritime climate, tempering the potential severity of the winter weather in this northern state. The south and east of the state have a semi-arid climate, similar to that of central states on the plains. Most of Idaho, particularly its center, is covered by forest. The major road networks serve the far south, north and east of the state, with the center and west relying primarily on state road networks.
South Carolina to Idaho Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since South Carolina and Idaho are mainly agricultural, 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 South Carolina and Idaho 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.
