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.
Connecticut is considered part of the New York metro area, and therefore is extremely accessible due to the large number of roads and railways through the state. Although Connecticut has some agricultural and industrial output, many residents of the state commute to New York for work. As there are far more goods moving into the state than going out, Connecticut freight shipping out of the state can almost always be found for low prices. The climate is mild and the roads are well maintained, although traffic can slow Connecticut shipping down somewhat. LTL shipping is usually affordable due to the volume of goods that move in, out, and through Connecticut.
