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.
Rhode Island is a very small state located on the northeastern Atlantic coast. The state has numerous ports and bays including the Port of Providence, one of the largest deep water seaports in the New England area. The state economy is based largely on manufactured goods, there is usually a steady stream of Rhode Island freight moving by truck. As a high-consumption state, outbound Rhode Island freight shipping rates are usually the least expensive. A high volume of goods moving through the state makes LTL shipping affordable. Although Rhode Island is the nation's smallest state, the proximity to larger and busier states means shipping prices are fairly low and normally stable.
