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.
Rhode Island is a very small state located on the northeastern Atlantic coast. The state has numerous ports and bays including the Port of Providence, one of the largest deep water seaports in the New England area. The state economy is based largely on manufactured goods, there is usually a steady stream of Rhode Island freight moving by truck.
