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.
Named after the Spanish for “mountainous country,” Montana contains numerous mountain ranges, many of which form part of the Rocky Mountains in the west of the state. Its unofficial nickname, Big Sky Country, refers to the huge expanses of flat open plains in the eastern part of Montana, which provide fertile ground for agriculture and ranching and cover 60% of the state’s territory.
The major cities of Montana include Missoula to the east, Billings in the south and Great Falls. State capital Helena, Butte and Bozeman are also major population centers. Thanks to its size, geography and the Continental Divide, the weather in Montana can vary dramatically. The coldest temperature ever recorded in the US was in Montana (-70ºF) and the valleys and mountains can attract fog that is difficult for even experienced Montana trucking companies to navigate.
Texas to Montana Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Texas is mainly industrial and Montana is mainly 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 Texas and Montana 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.
