Alaska is an enormous and remote area that often requires an exclusive shipping solution. The state is separated from the remaining continental United States by roughly 500 miles. Some Alaskan roads typically used by trucks are seasonal, meaning several regions are not always accessible for truckers. This makes shipping by air or sea viable options to consider when shipping in Alaska. Even though shipping out of the state is usually associated with low shipping rates, LTL prices are sometimes higher than shipping through air, even for the same weight. Low shipping rates are hard to find, especially when moving freight out of Alaska towards western regions.
