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.
Arizona is normally considered to be a desert state with long, straight roads on flat land. However, the northern part of the state also has mountain ranges. The state shares an international border with Mexico and produces two-thirds of the nation's copper, both factors that help keep the Arizona freight shipping industry efficient, both by truck and by rail. This also helps keep LTL prices low. Arizona shipping is also affected by the successful agricultural sector due to the warm climate that allows crops to be grown year-round. This can make freight shipping out of the state quite expensive due to high demand. The Phoenix Airport is a major hub for southwestern air traffic, making air freight shipping a viable option for many people.
