While many people would assume that California-based freight trucking carriers and providers would have the lowest California trucking rates for shipments within and to-and-from the state, this simply isn’t true.
Here at Freight Rate Central, we move millions of tons of products, machinery and equipment across this country constantly. That means we bring a lot of business and cash to small carriers and small networks of providers. This large volume of business allows us to negotiate steep price drops in the form of bulk discounts.
Our rates aren’t the only thing that separates us from the crowd, though—we also offer exceptional customer service. We have implemented an easy-to-use, one of a kind online online freight quoting system, and an online tracking system that gives our customers round-the-clock access to information. We also have friendly and knowledgeable customer service trucking rate specialists who are standing by to help..
California Trucking Services for the State of Industry
Did you know that if California were a country, it would have the sixth largest economy in the world? That’s right—California’s economy is even bigger than Texas’ or New York’s, with New York State’s economy only 70% the size of California’s. But then again, California does $1.2 trillion worth of business annually.
With a $1.2 trillion economy, it should come as no surprise that trucking in the state of California is a big deal. According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, although most trucks are used for short distances, close to one million trucks travel up to 200 miles from their home base in California. Even back in 1994, there were 2.7 million trailer and semi-trailer registrations in California. That’s a lot of trucking.
California not only ships a large quantity of products, machinery and equipment, it also has a very diverse shipping trade. California trucking is used by a wide variety of industries, including the state’s largest. California ships:
- Agricultural products, most notably dairy products, grapes, avocados, oranges, strawberries, tomatoes and cattle
- Aerospace, telecommunications and other high tech equipment
- Equipment for the motion picture and sound industries
- Construction and engineering equipment
- and much more!
What this California trucking industry boom has created is a patchwork of freight shipment providers and carriers that travel to, from and within California.
