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.
Straddling three regions of the country—east coast, midwest and south—Pennsylvania borders New York and New Jersey to the north and east, Ohio and Lake Erie to the west and Delaware, Maryland and West Virginia to the south. Philadelphia is Pennsylvania’s largest city and Pittsburgh is a distant second; both cities are known as twentieth century industrial powerhouses and are charging into the twenty-first century with knowledge and service-based economies.
In addition to Lake Erie, the Delaware Estuary and Delaware River are important bodies of water in Pennsylvania. From the Appalachian Mountains to the Allegheny Plateau, Ridge and Valley to the Atlantic Coastal Plain through Piedmont and the Erie Plain, Pennsylvania has a varied landscape that supports farming, manufacturing, development and tourism.
New Jersey to Pennsylvania Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs.

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 New Jersey and Pennsylvania 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.
