Utah to New Jersey Freight shipping and trucking services are in high demand; Salt Lake City to Trenton is a major route for freight shipping services.
The Salt Lake City, UT to Trenton, NJ route is a 2,163 mile trip that takes a little over 32 hours of driving to complete. Shipping from Utah to New Jersey ranges from a minimum of 2,051 miles and over 30 hours from Thompson, UT to Cherry Hill, NJ, to over 2,404 miles and a minimum of 36 hours on the road from St George, UT to Ridgewood, NJ. The shortest route from Utah to New Jersey is along the I-80 E; however, there’s also a more southern route that uses the I-70 E traveling through Columbus, OH instead of Naperville, IL.
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.
New Jersey’s state motto, “liberty and prosperity,” describes this second-wealthiest of the 50 US states well. The Garden State’s warm, humid summers, temperate spring and fall seasons and snowy winters help foster the rural agricultural areas that lie between metropolitan New York City to the north, Philadelphia to the south and the famous Jersey Shore along the Atlantic Ocean to the east. New Jersey’s largest cities are Newark, Jersey City and Patterson. State capitol Trenton’s motto, “Trenton makes, the world takes,” sums up New Jersey’s welcoming attitude toward commerce.
Utah to New Jersey Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Utah and New Jersey are mainly industrial 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 Utah and New Jersey 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.
