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.
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.
