Connecticut is extremely accessible due to the large number of roads and railways throughout the state, as well as being considered part of the New York metro area. The climate is mild and the roads are well maintained, although traffic can slow Connecticut shipping down to some degree. Although Connecticut has some agricultural and industrial output, numerous residents of the state commute to New York for work. LTL shipping is typically affordable because of the volume of merchandise that moves in, out and through Connecticut. As there are far more goods moving into the state than going out, Connecticut freight shipping out of the state can quite often be found at low costs.
