Man, was I in a bind last month. I am a sales person for a packaged food company and I had to receive about 150 cases of product, divvy it all up, and then ship it out to 70 different locations. I work from home and there was no way I was going to run this operation out of my 1 bedroom apartment. I was in a panic until I looked up some information and called Cowtown Express. They were so nice and agreed to receive the product, divide it up, and ship it out for me. Even though this kind of job is a little different than what they normally do, they were happy to figure out a way to get it done for me. Their labor costs were very reasonable and the whole thing got done with a lot less stress and hassle than I had expected.

Busiest Transportation Hubs We Serve in Texas

Busiest Transportation Hubs We Serve in Texas

Freight shipping in Texas isn't all about trucking. We also connect to airports and waterways.

The airports we serve include multiple locations across the state. Several cities are big enough for two airports, with one being international and the other domestic. Those cities are:

  • Dallas
  • Houston

Other cities that each have an international airport include:

  • Amarillo
  • Austin
  • Harlingen
  • El Paso
  • Lubbock
  • McAllen
  • Midland
  • San Antonio

Texas handles more exports than most states, and that includes shipping via waterways:

  • Gulf Waterway: Shipping here happens through the ports of Houston and Port Arthur.
  • Galveston Bay: The ports of Texas City and Galveston handle Gulf of Mexico traffic.
  • Corpus Christi Bay: The city of the same name is another Gulf of Mexico port.
  • Rio Grande River: The port of Brownsville serves as a focal point for commerce.
  • Inland Ports: Bay City is an inland port situated on the Colorado River, while the Sabine River has an inland port of Orange. The ports of Atreco and Beaumont are inland on the Neches River.

On top of all this, we also partner with many miles of the railway going in many directions across the Lone Star State.

FAQ

Do you still have questions about freight shipping in Texas? We've got answers to many queries others have had about using a Texas transport company.

What trucking rules and regulations exist in Texas?

Wondering what heavy equipment hauling companies have to follow in terms of the rules? TX trucking companies have to do their trucking within 30 minutes of dawn and dusk if their shipment is more than 100' in total length or 10' in overall width. Texas freight shipping longer than 110' needs a rear pilot car, and anything more than 125' needs pilot cars front and rear. 

Overweight loads that aren't oversize for shipping companies in TX can travel at night with proper illumination. Permits are required for anything over 80,000 pounds. Maximum trailer dimensions are 65' in length, 8'6" in width, and 14' in height.

What are the most popular industries in Texas?

If you're wondering what Texas freight trucking companies are doing their hauling for, then you should know that four sectors, in particular, are using Texas trucking companies more than anyone else. A lot of shipping to and from Texas involves the oil and gas sector, as fossil fuels are a huge business across the Lone Star State. 

Shipping companies in Texas also do a lot of work for renewable energy, too, since solar and wind power are both growing rapidly in the state. No Texas shipping company would be smart to ignore the local high-tech manufacturing sector. As always, agriculture keeps many trucking companies in Texas quite busy.
