Alaska is a relatively remote and large area that requires some special freight shipping solutions. By approximately 500 miles, Alaska is separated from the rest of the continental United States and some roads used by freight trucks are seasonal. As several regions are not reachable by road, Alaska shipping by air and sea are 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. Lower prices on Alaska freight shipping into the western regions can be difficult to find.
