The valleys and plains of Tennessee support major agriculture and textile manufacture industries, although some parts of the state are very mountainous. The wide range of industries make freight rates somewhat volatile and the mountains and cold winters can serve to further increase prices. Tennessee is situated in the southeastern part of the United States. LTL freight shipping is most inexpensive in the population centers and international airports make air shipping a choice to consider. An extensive network of railroads make rail shipping one of the cheapest ways to transport Tennessee freight. During the fall, outbound Tennessee freight shipping rates usually increase significantly.
