Auto Transport Routes: Houston to Portland
We’ve put our Auto Transport Routes series on hold for the past few months to focus on other things, but we’ve decided to revitalize it in lieu of the fact that it’s auto transport, and knowing how carriers get from one major city to another is important.
Houston is one of the largest cities in the state of Texas, and Portland is the largest city in the state of Oregon; together, they are two popular auto transport locations, and shipping from one to the other is actually fairly common, thanks mainly to the major auto auctions that tend to happen in larger cities.
The trek from Houston to Portland is roughly 2,200 miles, a trip for anyone but in particular an auto transport carrier. Luckily, they are both big and relatively easy to access, so prices shouldn’t sway too far from the mean.
Auto transport carriers have a variety of different options in terms of which routes they can take out of Houston to get to Portland. Houston has several major interstates that run through it, though typically I-10 is the most heavily traveled.
I-10 is a major east-west interstate that runs the entire length of the U.S. South, passing through a variety of states including California, Texas, Louisiana and Florida, to name a few. Carriers can use I-10 to get from Houston to Los Angeles and hitch a ride up I-5, which will run through all of California and into Portland proper.
This, of course, depends on the route that they are taking and the other pickup and delivery locations they need to travel to. Some carriers may take I-35 up north to Dallas, where they can catch I-40 into Los Angeles, or take I-25 up into Denver and catch I-70 west to catch I-5. There is also I-84, but that runs through southern Idaho and carriers would have to travel through Wyoming in order to catch it, which can cost a lot more.
