California shipping is extremely busy due to the state's numerous import and export channels. Although the state's geography is extremely diverse with plains, mountains, and deserts, the climate is quite mild in most areas. California freight moves fast and is extremely high in volume. The state is well-supplied with highways and railways as well as international ports in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and a shared border with Mexico. California also has two large international air travel hubs, which allows for even more shipping variations. The major cities often have severe traffic problems which may delay trucking in, out, and through these populated areas. The cost of freight shipping in California fluctuates greatly due to various factors involving the state's trade policies, but LTL and truckload shipping often have very low prices due to the high quantity of goods constantly moving throughout the state.

Agriculture plays a major role in the area, as well as tourism to major destinations throughout the state including Mount Rushmore.

Overall there is a low volume of goods moving through the state, making South Dakota freight rates slightly expensive especially towards more rural areas. Low freight rates are found near more populated centers and major railways. But overall, the low volume of goods traveling through the state make LTL shipping quite expensive in South Dakota.
