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.
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.
