Florida's biggest industry is tourism; the state also has sizable agricultural development and phosphate mining operations. The climate is mild but wet, making roads easy to travel. Florida freight rates tend to change with the seasons, as the tourist industry requires a large volume of goods to be shipped into the state year round. The summer citrus season can drive Florida freight prices up significantly. LTL freight shipping is usually very affordable due to the volume of goods moving through the state by truck and rail. Florida does not border any other countries, but there is a very busy international port that also helps drive the price and volume of freight through the state.
Alaska is a large and relatively remote area that may require some unique freight shipping solutions. Alaska is separated from the rest of the continental United States by approximately 500 miles, and some of the roads typically used by freight trucks are seasonal. Several regions are not accessible by road, making Alaska shipping by air and sea important options to consider. Although shipping out of the state is normally associated with lower prices than shipping into the state, LTL prices are often higher than air shipping for the same weight. Low prices on Alaska freight shipping into the western regions can be difficult to find.
