Minnesota is a northern Midwest state the borders the Great Lakes and also Canada. The Twin Cities area of Minneapolis and St. Paul is the center of population and transportation. Most of Minnesota consists of flat prairies, but there are forests in the northernmost regions. The state produces lumber, agricultural products, and a wide range of manufactured goods. Minnesota freight shipping is accomplished in a variety of ways, including road, rail, and water transport. Although the state has an active shipping system, Minnesota freight rates can be quite expensive due to the relative remoteness of the state. LTL freight shipping is especially expensive due to the lack of volume of goods moving through the state.
Connecticut is considered part of the New York metro area, and therefore is extremely accessible due to the large number of roads and railways through the state. Although Connecticut has some agricultural and industrial output, many residents of the state commute to New York for work. As there are far more goods moving into the state than going out, Connecticut freight shipping out of the state can almost always be found for low prices. The climate is mild and the roads are well maintained, although traffic can slow Connecticut shipping down somewhat. LTL shipping is usually affordable due to the volume of goods that move in, out, and through Connecticut.
