Maryland, sits on the northeastern coast of the United States. Maryland is a state with calm and predictable weather, leading to lower competitive rates. Baltimore is Maryland's central port. The port constantly receives and ships out rail and sea freight. Although air rates in Maryland are lower than other states, rates for air transportation are still significantly higher than truck, rail, or sea rates. Maryland's constant movement of shipment keeps rates from fluctuating any higher.
Illinois is one of the busiest states in the Midwest. With Chicago as its central hub, there are various major port connections for sea transportation, such as the Great Lakes and the Mississippi river. This drives very low canal transportation rates. Chicago also happens to be a very well known railroad hub in the U.S., also driving inexpensive rates for transport. Chicago is enriched with farmlands, meat and dairy, and energy production that are transported through the city's extensive road and highway system, making LTL shipping affordable and inexpensive throughout the state.
