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.
North Dakota is a northern Great Plains state that shares a border with Canada. The area is primarily agricultural, with a mining and drilling industry. Population density is low, so North Dakota shipping is very low-volume. However, flat roads and low demand for freight trucking allows freight shipping to remain affordable. North Dakota freight also moves by rail in some areas, though prices increase further from the population centers. LTL freight rates are usually fairly high due to the low volume of goods moving through the state. Freight shipping prices will be highest in the most rural areas, while prices will decrease closest to the busiest metro areas.
