Maryland is a small state located on the Atlantic coast of the United States. Maryland's fair climate makes shipping rates more affordable in comparison to other states. Baltimore's central port is the main hub, receiving large volumes of rail and sea traffic moving in and out of the region. Shipping by air is usually higher in price, but here at FreightCenter we always offer reasonable rates. The high volume of traffic moving through Maryland also drives freight rates down. Moving freight from Maryland into other states usually costs less than moving freight into Maryland.
Alaska is the largest state in the United States, with about 500 miles of distance from the continental states. As a result of its distance, shipping to Alaska could require specialized freight solutions. LTL prices are sometimes higher than air cargo, even for loads that have the same weight. This is because Alaska's delicate weather makes some roads seasonably unavailable, limiting the use of truckloads. In relation to that, Alaska often requires air or sea freight, rather than road. As a result, low shipping prices for Alaska are sometimes tough to obtain. Moving loads out of Alaska is lower than moving loads in.
