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.
Montana is a large northern state with a very low population density. The state has thriving agricultural, lumber, and mining industries. While some of the state includes open plains, a large amount consists of mountain ranges. Montana has well-maintained roads and important railroad lines moving through the state. Montana freight shipping can be somewhat more expensive due to the relative remoteness of many areas, but the state industries guarantee a certain amount of volume of goods moving through the state. LTL freight rates can be expensive, and the least expensive Montana freight rates can be found in areas close to the rail lines.
