Texas to Florida Freight shipping and trucking services are highly sought after; the route from Dallas to Miami is primarily a very busy lane.
The Dallas, TX, to Miami, FL route is a 1308.50 mile haul that takes more than 19 hours of driving to complete. Shipping from Texas to Florida ranges from a minimum of 440 miles and 6 hours from Beaumont, Texas to Pensacola, Florida, and over 1900 miles and a minimum of 27 hours on the road from El Paso, TX to Miami, Fl. 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-20, passing through Dallas rather than Houston.
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.
Florida is a state that has an incredibly long coastline with many islands and peninsulas. Most of the state has a sub-tropical climate, with temperatures that often top 100° F in the summer. Most major shipping and trucking delays in Florida are related to hurricanes and tropical storms, which regularly affect various part of the state, especially on the east coast. Look out for hurricanes and tropical storms from June through November. Florida’s largest cities, all with populations of over a million in their metropolitans areas, are Miami, Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville. However, Florida has many medium-sized cities and industrial areas along its coasts; shipping tends to be distributed over a large area in Florida.
Texas to Florida freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Texas’s Industry is more so industrial and Florida’s Industry is more agricultural, with food processing and food distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by Flatbed as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Although, there are plenty of refrigerated shipments needing to be transported to Texas from Florida as well. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Texas and Florida are also running a number of regular services between the two states, and it’s an active route for flatbed and specialized freight shipments given the booming oil industry in Texas currently. It’s not called Texas Tea for nothing!
