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.
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.
Wyoming to Alabama Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Wyoming is mostly industrial, and Alabama is mainly agricultural, with many food processing and distribution centers, we see plenty of shipments by refrigerated trailer. 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 Wyoming and Alabama 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.
