Alabama to Utah freight shipping and trucking services are in high demand. Birmingham to Provo is a major route for freight shipping services.
The Birmingham to Provo route is a 1,811 mile trip that takes a little over 26 hours of driving to complete. Shipping from Alabama to Utah ranges from a minimum of 1,469 miles and 22 hours from Florence, AL to Monticello, UT to over 2,115 miles and a minimum of 31 hours on the road from Dothan, AL to Park Valley, UT. The shortest route from Alabama to Utah is along I-70 W; however, there’s also a more northern route that also uses the I-65 N passing through Kansas City, MS.
From the Gulf of Mexico to the Appalachian Mountains and from forests to factory farms, Alabama’s landscape is as diverse as its population. Because it is a southern state, ice and snow are seldom concerns in Alabama shipping. However, the summers can be dangerously hot and the storms can be extreme. Thunderstorms and tropical storms are common, especially in the southern part of the state, and hurricanes and tornados can also be hazards in Alabama freight shipping. The southern end of the Appalachian Mountain chain can be found in the northeastern part of Alabama and can pose shipping challenges, as well.
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.
Alabama to Utah Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Alabama is mainly agricultural, and Utah is mainly industrial, with food processing and food distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Alabama and Utah are also running a number of regular services between the two states, and it’s an active route for flatbed freight, as well.
