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.
Kansas’ reputation as America’s heartland is well deserved. Equidistant from both the Pacific and Atlantic Coasts. The geographic center of the 48 contiguous United States is located in Smith County, Kansas, near the city of Lebanon. Home to legendary Old West cow town Dodge City and part of the historic Santa Fe Trail, Kansas is bordered by Nebraska, Oklahoma, Colorado and Missouri and shares with Missouri its most populous area—the Kansas part of Kansas City, which straddles the state line.
The manufacturing sector is responsible for much of Kansas’ industry, with the aerospace industry making up the majority of the state’s manufacturing jobs. Spirit Aero systems and Cessna are two of the best-known aerospace manufacturers in the state. Other well-known industrial names that call Kansas home include Sprint-Nextel, General Motors and Garmin. Oil and natural gas are other major industries in Kansas; the state ranks 8th in the nation for production of both resources.
Texas to Kansas Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Texas is mainly industrial and Kansas is 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 Texas and Kansas 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.
