Utah to Florida Freight shipping and trucking services are in high demand; Salt Lake City to Miami is a major route for freight shipping services.
The Salt Lake City, UT to Miami, FL route is a 2,534 mile trip that takes a little over 38 hours of driving to complete. Shipping from Utah to Florida ranges from a minimum of 1,635 miles and over 25 hours from Monticello, UT to Pensacola, FL, to over 2,629 miles and a minimum of 39 hours on the road from Wendover, UT to Fort Lauderdale, FL. The shortest route from Utah to Florida is along the I-80 E; however, there’s also a more southern route that uses the I-70 E heading through Denver, CO and Memphis, TN.
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.
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.
Utah to Florida Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Utah’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. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Utah and Florida 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.
