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.
North Dakota is a northern Great Plains state that shares a border with Canada. The area is primarily agricultural, with a mining and drilling industry. Population density is low, so North Dakota shipping is very low-volume. However, flat roads and low demand for freight trucking allows freight shipping to remain affordable. North Dakota freight also moves by rail in some areas, though prices increase further from the population centers. LTL freight rates are usually fairly high due to the low volume of goods moving through the state. Freight shipping prices will be highest in the most rural areas, while prices will decrease closest to the busiest metro areas.
