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.
Iowa is a primarily agricultural state with prairie lands and rolling hills. Severe weather and cold winters do not substantially impact freight trucking in the state, and Iowa freight shipping rates are extremely affordable. The state also borders the Mississippi River, the Missouri River, and the Big Sioux River, allowing for plenty of Iowa freight to move by water. Because Iowa produces a high volume of goods, freight shipping is usually very inexpensive. Plenty of traffic by road, rail, air, and water means that LTL freight can travel for very low prices. Iowa has many different industries and freight shipping in, out, and through the state is very busy.
