Wyoming is the 10th largest state in the US but surprisingly has the lowest population in the country. With the majority of the state being covered by the Rocky Mountains and the rest of the state is covered in a high elevation prairie also know as the High Plains. Since most of the states land is owned by the federal government, it houses two national recreation parks, Grand Teton, and Yellowstone park, along with wildlife refuges, fish hatcheries, historic sites as well as a couple national monuments and national forests.
Wyoming’s economy is mainly driven by mineral extraction, the majority being coal but oil and natural gas are also being extracted along with trona, which is mined in the United States as the main source of sodium carbonate. Tourism is also another contributor to the economy with the national parks, Yellowstone for instance spreads across to some of Wyoming’s neighboring states, which include Montana, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, South Dakota and Nebraska.
The ‘Empire State’ has an exceptional economic location for New York trucking companies, as it neighbors six states and a number of America’s most prosperous cities. It also shares a border with Canada’s economic centers: Toronto and Montreal. New York’s close proximity to major US cities has created a boom in the freight trucking industry, especially with routes to Cleveland, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cincinnati and Indianapolis, with their strong automotive, heavy manufacturing, publishing, printing, biomedical, biotechnology and telecommunications industries. Within the state itself, the major routes for New York freight companies are between New York City, Buffalo and Rochester. New York’s geography and climate creates unique challenges in terms of shipping. It has varied terrain with mountains, forests, valleys and lakes—and a number of microclimates. The great variance in weather, between humid summers and bitterly cold winters, poses further challenges, as do New York’s strict commercial shipping regulations.
