North Carolina is a southern state on the Atlantic coast. While the eastern half of the state consists of fertile plains, the western half is quite mountainous. North Carolina freight rates can be quite volatile due to the agriculture, lumber, and manufacturing industries as well as the weather. The coastal location can make North Carolina shipping rates most affordable on the eastern side of the state. Low prices on inbound shipping can often be found during the fall months, when outbound prices increase. Due to low consumption and low volume of goods moving through the state, LTL freight rates can be higher than normal in North Carolina.
