California shipping is extremely busy in this state with numerous import and export channels. Although the geography is extremely diverse with plains, mountains, and deserts, the climate is quite mild in most of the state. California freight is both fast and extremely high volume. The state is well-supplied with highways and railways as well as international ports in both Los Angeles and San Francisco and an international border shared with Mexico. California also has two large international air travel hubs. The major cities often have severe traffic problems which can delay trucking in and out of these centers. The cost of freight shipping in California can vary greatly due to the many factors involved in the state's commerce, but LTL and truckload shipping often have very low prices simply because of the quantity of goods moving through the state.
Washington is located in the Pacific Northwest and borders both the Pacific Ocean and Canada. Much of the terrain consists of rugged mountain ranges. Agriculture is a major industry in the state, which also boasts an extremely busy international port. Heavy snows during the winter can close some mountain passes, making some roads difficult to travel during these months. An extended network of waterways allows for Washington freight to move by water when possible. Most rail lines also connect to the busy ports, allowing for Washington shipping rates to remain low and reasonable. LTL freight is usually affordable due to the volume of goods moving through the state.
