No other state moves materials like Texas. Not only is Texas geographically the largest state in the continental United States, it also draws the most revenue from exports. Most of its major industries are in the natural resources, agricultural, and manufacturing sectors, which means that freight never stops flowing. We hear that Texas even takes cargo into orbit every once in a while. Texas spans seven major geographic regions ranging from sun-blasted deserts and hill country to semitropical coastal plains. Cities like Austin, Houston and Dallas dominate the state’s economy and consistently attract new businesses. Due to its size, shipping across the state is a taxing job, but Freight Rate Central’s trucking and freight team are more than up to the task. No matter the size of your order, we can move your cargo through Texas quickly and professionally.
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.
Texas to Alabama Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Alabama and Texas are largely agricultural, 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 Texas and Alabama are also running a number of regular services between the two states, and it’s an active route for flatbed trucking freight, as well.
