Spanning Randall and Potter counties, Amarillo is the largest municipality in the Texas Panhandle, with a central population of 199,000 and a metro population of more than 300,000. It’s status as the Panhandle’s main metropolis makes it a critical hub for processing the soy, hay, sorghum, wheat, cotton, corn, and other crops grown throughout that region. Accordingly, food processors like Tyson have major facilities here, as do advanced manufacturers like Bell Helicopter Textron, BWXT Pantex, and ASARCO, to name just a few. Combined with interstate trade coming in from New Mexico and Oklahoma, these activities make Amarillo a hotbed for economic growth, powering development for the entire Panhandle.

As a large city in an otherwise rural area, Amarillo faces a unique set of challenges. The smaller regional population means that local roads and other infrastructure are not as intricate or as plentiful as those in denser regions like Greater Houston or the Dallas Metroplex.
Accordingly, not as many trucks, vans, and tractor trailers can enter Amarillo on any given day as those other cities. But because so much business happens in or moves through Amarillo, the city often needs deliveries on a par with those in Houston and Dallas. This means that the roads into Amarillo are often clogged with more carriers than they can handle, and thus that traffic jams are a common sight.
This is frustrating for commuters and for businesses with more flexible supply needs, but it is absolutely devastating for food processors, manufacturers, and other companies whose supplies need to arrive on tight, predictable schedules.
AirFreight.com ensures that you can always keep to your schedule, no matter what the roads look like. As an expert Panhandle delivery broker, we’ve long served Amarillo and other cities in the area, including White Deer, Skellytown, Calude, Canyon, and Groom.
