Virginia freight is most affordable by rail as the major seaport at the Virginia Port of Authority connects to the railway system. Shipping prices increase significantly in more remote areas which leads to affordable LTL freight rates near the population centers. The eastern section of the state is largely flat, while the western half has numerous mountain ranges including the Cumberland Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains. Virginia has a growing agricultural sector, as well as an expansive business sector. Four international airports and a busy seaport make international freight shipping affordable on the coast. Virginia is situated in the focal point of the Atlantic coast. Trucking can be troublesome in the rough western half of the state, making most rural Virginia shipping quite costly.
