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.
The heart of the Old South, South Carolina is amazingly diverse for a state that ranks 40th in size in the US. The Blue Ridge Mountains delineate South Carolina’s northwest boundaries with North Carolina and Georgia. The Piedmont region is rolling hills, the aptly named Sand hills region is in the central part of the state, and the Outer and Inner Coastal Plains sweep to the Atlantic Ocean. South Carolina’s state capital, Columbia, is its largest city, with coastal Charleston coming in second. South Carolina’s diversity extends to the state’s climate. Summers are uniformly hot, but its coastal areas have mild winters, while the inland and upland areas of South Carolina see cooler winters with freezing rain and occasional snow. Freezing rain can make conditions hazardous for travel in the winter; bridges in the state are often marked “bridges freeze before roadways” for this reason. Tropical storms and spring rains are also common, although the state sees less hurricane and cyclone conditions than nearby North Carolina.
Wyoming to South Carolina Freight shipping quotes and trucking rates vary at times due to the individual states industry needs. Since Wyoming is mostly industrial, and South Carolina 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 South Carolina 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.
