Supporting the supplies and crops of farming requires freight transportation of goods. Farm assets such as equipment, feed, seed, or crops are shipped in and out daily or seasonally. These freight costs impact the profitability of a farm. We work with suppliers and growers to minimize the expenses of shipping supplies. Our carriers support every location, ranch, or farm in Pennsylvania.
South Dakota is a Great Plains state in the northern part of the country. Agriculture plays a major role in the state, as well as tourism to major destinations including Mount Rushmore. The state has extensive rail lines and highways, although harsh winters can make South Dakota freight shipping difficult in some areas. Overall there is a very low volume of goods moving through the state, making South Dakota freight rates quite expensive in the more rural areas. The lowest freight rates can be found near the population centers and railroads. This low volume also makes LTL shipping quite expensive in South Dakota.
