Illinois freight shipping

Illinois Freight Shipping Map 

Illinois is probably the busiest state in the Midwest, with the metropolitan area of Chicago being a major Illinois freight shipping hub. There is a major port here that connects the Great Lakes to the Mississippi river, allowing for inexpensive water transport. Illinois freight shipping by rail is also very inexpensive and easy to use, as Chicago is one of the largest railroad hubs in the country. There is also an extensive highway system that helps move the high volume of goods produced in Illinois from agriculture, meat and dairy production, and energy production. LTL freight shipping is usually quite affordable due to the high volume of goods moving in, out, and through the state.


FreightCenter is the leader in cross-country freight shipping.


California freight shipping

California Freight Shipping Map

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.
