Texas to California Freight shipping and trucking services are highly sought after; the route from Dallas to Los Angeles is an especially heavily traveled route.
The Dallas to Los Angeles route is a 1436 mile haul that takes more than 20 hours of driving to complete. Shipping from Texas to California ranges from a minimum of 500 miles and 7 hours from El Paso Texas to Quartzsite California to over 2,300 miles and a minimum of 34 hours on the road from McAllen, TX area to the Redding, CA area. The shortest route from Florida to California is along the I-10; however, there’s also a more northerly route that uses the US-60, passing through San Antonio New Mexico rather than Tucson Arizona.
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.
California is a large, densely populated state, especially along the Pacific Coast where the San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego metropolitan areas link northern, central and southern California. For the most part, California has a pleasant and mild climate. It’s hotter and drier in the south, and the north is colder in the winter and wetter in the summer. With mountains in the east and hills in the west, along the coast, it’s is a beautiful state to drive through, but it can be demanding for California truckers. Many truckers would say that California’s greatest challenges lie in its diesel regulations and traffic congestion.
Texas to California Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since California and Texas are both largely agricultural, food processing and food distribution centers with Texas being more Industrial that agricultural… we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both California and Texas are also running a number of regular services between the two states, and it’s an active route for flatbed freight, as well as specialized and heavy haul trucking.
