Utah to Georgia Freight shipping and trucking services are in high demand; Salt Lake City to Atlanta is a major route for freight shipping services.
The Salt Lake City, UT to Atlanta, GA route is a 1,872 mile trip that takes a little over 28 hours of driving to complete. Shipping from Utah to Georgia ranges from a minimum of 1,656 miles and over 25 hours from Bluff, UT to Dalton, GA, to over 2,221 miles and a minimum of 32 hours on the road from Park Valley, UT to Savannah, GA. The shortest route from Utah to Georgia is along the I-80 E; however, there’s also a more southern route that uses the I-70 E heading near Denver, CO and through Kansas.
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.
Georgia, the Peach State, is on the Atlantic Ocean in the southeastern corner of the country. Its major metropolitan area, Atlanta, is the economic center of the southeast. The Blue Ridge Mountains, a mountain range in the Appalachian Mountain system, make up the northern part of the state, and the southern part of the state is a coastal plain. Along with the Atlantic Ocean, Georgia’s borders include Florida to the south, South Carolina to the east, Alabama to the west, and Tennessee and North Carolina to the north. Georgia is generally hot and humid in the summer and mild in the winter. It can be in the path of tropical storms or hurricanes during hurricane season (June 1 to November 30), and is occasionally affected by snow or ice in the winter. Georgia freight and shipping is concentrated in Atlanta and to a lesser degree, Savannah.
Utah to Georgia Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Utah is more industrial, and Georgia 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 Georgia 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.
