New York is a very busy state on the northern Atlantic coast, known as a major population center for the entire United States and a large part of the world. In the outskirts of the major city lies the country known for its farming, forested areas and mountains. The state focuses mainly on its major manufacturing and agricultural industries. New York freight shipping is easily accomplished due to the amount of infrastructure and planning devoted to the extensive rail and highway system. International sea and airports allow for a variety of international shipping options. Truckload shipping is usually the least expensive due to the state's high demand of goods. New York freight rates are most affordable when goods are shipping out of the state, but overall freight rates are found to be normally low due to the busy economy and high volume of goods moving in, out and through the state.
Illinois is the most active state in the Midwest, because of the city center area of Chicago. The major port in the state connects the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River, allowing for a less costly waterway transportation system. Illinois railway shipping is also very inexpensive and easily accessible, as Chicago homes one of the largest railroad hubs in the country. The state's elaborate highway system allows for the transportation of various items produced in Illinois, ranging from agriculture to meat and dairy production to energy production. LTL freight shipping is usually less costly due to the high volume of freight moving throughout Illinois.
