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.
Colorado is a mountainous state with severe and often unpredictable weather on the roads. Harsh winters and steep roads can make freight trucking dangerous, however most Colorado shipping is done by truck. The state economy is driven by a variety of industries including agriculture, meat production, mining, drilling, and manufacturing. There is a comparatively small volume of goods moving through the state, so low Colorado freight shipping prices may be difficult to find, especially in the winter. However, shipping goods out of the state is often less expensive than shipping goods in. LTL shipping can be affordable because most of the state's freight shipping is done via truck rather than rail or air.
