Utah is a mountainous western state with a dense population center and a large area of very rural land. Mining and ranching are the main industries, and Utah freight shipping is heavily focused on these areas. Most Utah freight moves by truck, and LTL shipping rates can be found for the lowest prices close to the population centers. Overall there is a fairly low volume of goods moving in, out, and through Utah. International airports make air freight a possibility. Rail shipping is also affordable especially close to the rail lines. Shipping by truck is the most cost-effective way to move freight through Utah.
Alaska is a large and relatively remote area that may require some unique freight shipping solutions. Alaska is separated from the rest of the continental United States by approximately 500 miles, and some of the roads typically used by freight trucks are seasonal. Several regions are not accessible by road, making Alaska shipping by air and sea important options to consider. Although shipping out of the state is normally associated with lower prices than shipping into the state, LTL prices are often higher than air shipping for the same weight. Low prices on Alaska freight shipping into the western regions can be difficult to find.
