Texas to Arizona Freight shipping and trucking services are in high demand; the route from Dallas to Phoenix is primarily a very busy lane.
The Dallas, TX, to Phoenix, AZ route is a 1064 mile haul that takes more than 14 hours of driving to complete. Shipping from Texas to Arizona ranges from a minimum of 200 miles and 2 1/2 hours from El Paso, Texas to San Simon, Arizona, and over 1500 miles and a minimum of 22 hours on the road from the south point of Texas in Brownsville, TX to the Northwest Tip of Arizona bordering Las Vegas, NV. The shortest route from Texas to Florida is along the I-10 corridor; however, there’s also a more northerly route that uses the I-40, passing through Albuquerque, NM rather than Las Cruces, NM.
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.
Arizona is one of the “four corners” states and home to the Grand Canyon. It shares one point with Colorado and borders New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and California. It also shares a 389-mile-long border with the country of Mexico. The southern part of the state is known for its desert climate, while the northern part has dense forests with variable weather. More than half of the state is made up of mountains, valleys and plateaus, with slightly over 12,500 feet between its highest and lowest points. The diverse climate and scenery draw an astounding number of people to the state each year, making tourism one of Arizona’s top industries. The Phoenix Metropolitan area is the most densely populated part of the state, and it is home to 65 percent of the state’s residents. Tucson and Flagstaff are also centers for Arizona freight and trucking.
Since Arizona and Texas Industries are more industrial than agricultural, with manufacturing and distribution centers throughout, we see plenty of shipments by Flatbed as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Arizona and Texas are also running a number of regular services between the two states, and it’s an active route for flatbed freight shipments, as well.
