Auto Transport Routes: Indianapolis to Topeka
Indianapolis is the capital of the state of Indiana. Topeka is the capital of the state of Kansas. And they sit roughly 550 miles apart. This makes it incredibly for auto transporters to run routes between Indianapolis and Topeka, and it’s one of the more common routes in the Midwest believe it or not, despite the fact that transportation services between the two cities themselves is not. Indianapolis is one of the most popular auto transport locations in the country; known as the Crossroads of America, there are like five major interstates that run through the city. Topeka may not be as popular a transport location, sure, but it sits along I-70, which – and you’ll learn why in a minute – only helps keep prices lower and shipment times quicker.
As mentioned, I-70 is a major component on the route from Indianapolis to Topeka. In fact, it’s the quickest way from Indy to Topeka, at least according to Google Maps. If you look, it’s a straight shot from A to B – running east-west along a major transportation corridor through several major areas including Terre Haute, Saint Louis and Columbia. Those three cities are all right along the route from Indy to Topeka, and it’s really not that long a route anyway – most individual motorists could do the drive in half a day. Auto transporters would likely stop in a variety of areas, particularly the larger cities mentioned earlier, so their transport time may be two or three days. But still, that’s a quick turnaround time in the car shipping industry.
Unlike routes in the western U.S. or in the northern tundra that is North Dakota and the surrounding area (seriously, no one lives up there), shipping from Indianapolis to Topeka is a straight shot, and that’s something that a lot of auto transporters really like. In the United States, there are pockets of major populations, but – and this is particularly true in the Midwest – there are a lot of areas that have virtually no one living in them, and its those areas that can cause problems for the wallets of auto shipping companies. That’s why a route like this one here is one that east-west carriers will likely jump on, as they’re running through Topeka anyway (or at least through the area, if they’re heading east-west).
