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.
The state is very much connected with agriculture advancement and mining phosphate operations. The primary business in Florida is tourism. The climate is simple yet wet which makes freight trucking easy. LTL freight shipping is generally very reasonable due to the volume of stock moving through the state by means of rail and truck. Florida may not border different countries, but instead there is a thriving international port that helps to drive the cost and volume of freight through the state. Contingent upon the month, Florida freight rates can change because the tourism industry requires goods to be dispatched through the state consistently. Furthermore, the summer season can be considered a reason for increased Florida freight rates.
