Alaska is a large and relatively remote area that may require some unique freight shipping solutions. Alaska is separated from the rest of the continental United States by approximately 500 miles, and some of the roads typically used by freight trucks are seasonal. Several regions are not accessible by road, making Alaska shipping by air and sea important options to consider. Although shipping out of the state is normally associated with lower prices than shipping into the state, LTL prices are often higher than air shipping for the same weight. Low prices on Alaska freight shipping into the western regions can be difficult to find.
