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.
Idaho is a large and mountainous state with the furthest inland seaport on the west coast. The state is an important agricultural producer in the United States, and in addition to food, Idaho produces lumber, electronics, and gemstones. The roads may be poorly maintained, but Idaho freight shipping is usually inexpensive due to the number of trucks moving through the state. Due to the Lewistown Port, international shipping can be considered. There are two different transcontinental railways passing through the state, and Idaho freight is usually even less expensive when goods are traveling west. LTL freight shipping can be expensive due to the high volume of goods moving out of the state compared to the volume of goods moving in.
