North Carolina freight rates can be quite volatile due to the agriculture, lumber, and manufacturing industries as well as the weather.

Low prices on inbound shipping can often be found during the fall months, when outbound prices increase. Due to low consumption and low volume of goods moving through the state, LTL freight rates can be higher than normal in North Carolina.
