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.
Alaska is a large and relatively remote area that may require some unique freight shipping solutions. Alaska is separated from the rest of the continental United States by approximately 500 miles, and some of the roads typically used by freight trucks are seasonal. Several regions are not accessible by road, making Alaska shipping by air and sea important options to consider. Although shipping out of the state is normally associated with lower prices than shipping into the state, LTL prices are often higher than air shipping for the same weight. Low prices on Alaska freight shipping into the western regions can be difficult to find.
