One of America’s foremost agricultural states, Idaho is sparsely populated, but well connected. Bordered by Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Canada, the major cities of Idaho Falls and Boise are situated in the south-east and south-west of the state.
Despite its landlocked position, western Idaho has a primarily maritime climate, tempering the potential severity of the winter weather in this northern state. The south and east of the state have a semi-arid climate, similar to that of central states on the plains. Most of Idaho, particularly its center, is covered by forest. The major road networks serve the far south, north and east of the state, with the center and west relying primarily on state road networks.
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.
Idaho to Wyoming Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Idaho is an agricultural state and Wyoming is mainly industrial, with many food processing and distribution centers, trucking rates will vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. We see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer, flatbed trailer as well as by the more common dry van trucks. Our Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers in both Idaho and Wyoming 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.
