Tennessee is located in the southeastern portion of the United States. Though some parts of the terrain are quite mountainous, the valleys and plains of Tennessee support major agriculture and textile manufacture industries. An extensive network of railroads make rail shipping one of the cheapest ways to move Tennessee freight. During the fall, outbound Tennessee freight shipping rates tend to increase significantly. The different industries make freight rates somewhat volatile, and the mountains and cold winters can serve to further increase prices. LTL freight shipping is most affordable in the population centers, and international airports make air shipping a possibility.
