Idaho is a large and mountainous state with the furthest inland seaport on the west coast. The state is an important agricultural producer in the United States, and in addition to food, Idaho produces lumber, electronics, and gemstones. The roads may be poorly maintained, but Idaho freight shipping is usually inexpensive due to the number of trucks moving through the state. Due to the Lewistown Port, international shipping can be considered. There are two different transcontinental railways passing through the state, and Idaho freight is usually even less expensive when goods are traveling west. LTL freight shipping can be expensive due to the high volume of goods moving out of the state compared to the volume of goods moving in.
California shipping is extremely busy in this state with numerous import and export channels. Although the geography is extremely diverse with plains, mountains, and deserts, the climate is quite mild in most of the state. California freight is both fast and extremely high volume. The state is well-supplied with highways and railways as well as international ports in both Los Angeles and San Francisco and an international border shared with Mexico. California also has two large international air travel hubs. The major cities often have severe traffic problems which can delay trucking in and out of these centers. The cost of freight shipping in California can vary greatly due to the many factors involved in the state's commerce, but LTL and truckload shipping often have very low prices simply because of the quantity of goods moving through the state.
