Alaska exports an estimated five billion dollars’ worth of goods a year. The state’s exports continue to grow year after year. Seafood accounts for the largest volume of exports. Asia is a top international importer of Alaskan goods. China is one of the major importers and processors of Alaskan seafood. China, Japan, South Korea, Canada and Germany are the top five Alaskan consumers. Minerals and ores are the second biggest products exported. Copper ore and zinc are the top two minerals. Gold and silver precious metals only make up approximately ten percent of zinc exports. Smelting ore is nonexistent in the state. Countries with large smelting industries buy most of the ore from Alaska. Oil and gas are the third highest exported goods for the state. Japan purchases millions in liquefied natural gas annually.

Situated on the Atlantic coast, the weather is generally mellow, making Maryland freight shipping rates affordable. The Port of Baltimore is an important freight shipping center for the Midwest and a large measure of Maryland freight travels by shipping canal and by rail. Maryland is a small state with rolling hills and flat grasslands. Air freight is offered at a reasonable rate, though trucking, rail and canal shipping are usually less expensive. LTL freight shipping is easy to discover for low prices because of the high volume of goods shifting through Maryland. Shipping goods out of the state is generally cheaper than shipping goods into Maryland.
