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.
Almost all of Utah’s nearly three million inhabitants live among the valleys of the Wasatch Front. As a result, much of the state is largely uninhabited and unspoiled. To the west of the I-15, the landscape is broadly desert. To the south and east, the soft sandstone has been etched by wind and weather over time to form stunning natural sculptures. Dotted throughout the state are pine forests, valleys and basins.
The climate is semi-arid or desert, with moisture coming chiefly from Pacific Ocean storms or Gulf of California monsoons. Winter inversions are common, especially around the basins, causing haze and freezing fog. Tornados are unusual, but wildfires are increasingly common due to the high summer temperatures and dry climate.
Texas to Utah Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Texas and Utah are mainly industrial, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer, flatbed as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Heavy Hauling Trucking services are also common from Texas to Utah. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers 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.
