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.
Virginia is located in the center of the Atlantic coast. The eastern half of the state is largely flat, while the western half is part of several mountain ranges including the Appalachian Mountains and the Cumberland Mountains. Virginia has a busy agricultural sector, as well as a large business sector. Four international airports and a busy seaport make international freight shipping affordable on the coast. The major seaport at the Virginia Port of Authority connects to the railway system, making Virginia freight most affordable by rail. Trucking can be difficult in the rugged western half of the state, making most rural Virginia shipping quite expensive. LTL freight is affordable close to the population centers, with shipping prices increasing significantly in more remote areas.
