North Carolina is a southern state on the Atlantic coast. While the eastern half of the state consists of fertile plains, the western half is quite mountainous. North Carolina freight rates can be quite volatile due to the agriculture, lumber, and manufacturing industries as well as the weather. The coastal location can make North Carolina shipping rates most affordable on the eastern side of the state. 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.
Iowa is a primarily agricultural state with prairie lands and rolling hills. Severe weather and cold winters do not substantially impact freight trucking in the state, and Iowa freight shipping rates are extremely affordable. The state also borders the Mississippi River, the Missouri River, and the Big Sioux River, allowing for plenty of Iowa freight to move by water. Because Iowa produces a high volume of goods, freight shipping is usually very inexpensive. Plenty of traffic by road, rail, air, and water means that LTL freight can travel for very low prices. Iowa has many different industries and freight shipping in, out, and through the state is very busy.
