Washington State’s nickname, “The Evergreen State,” doesn’t do justice to the vast geography of this Pacific Northwestern state. Although lush rainforests do flourish in the central part of the state, glaciers, islands and fjords are part of the state’s Pacific Coast landscape, while the Cascade Mountain range is found in the drier, eastern area. Likewise, the rain that the Washington’s most populous city, Seattle, is known for is not typical of the whole state. A dry, semi-arid climate is found in the east, while the mountains are known for deep snows in the winter that make snow chains a November to April requirement for trucking and freight services operating in Washington State. Washington freight and shipping is concentrated in Seattle and along the coast, and Spokane is a smaller center for Washington freight and trucking.

Washington to Nevada Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Washington is mainly agricultural, and Nevada is mostly industrial, with many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer. We also see a number of flatbed shipments as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Washington and Nevada 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.
