Virginia is located in the center of the Atlantic coast. The eastern half of the state is largely flat, while the western half is part of several mountain ranges including the Appalachian Mountains and the Cumberland Mountains. Virginia has a busy agricultural sector, as well as a large business sector. Four international airports and a busy seaport make international freight shipping affordable on the coast. The major seaport at the Virginia Port of Authority connects to the railway system, making Virginia freight most affordable by rail. Trucking can be difficult in the rugged western half of the state, making most rural Virginia shipping quite expensive. LTL freight is affordable close to the population centers, with shipping prices increasing significantly in more remote areas.
California shipping is extremely busy in this state with numerous import and export channels. Although the geography is extremely diverse with plains, mountains, and deserts, the climate is quite mild in most of the state. California freight is both fast and extremely high volume. The state is well-supplied with highways and railways as well as international ports in both Los Angeles and San Francisco and an international border shared with Mexico. California also has two large international air travel hubs. The major cities often have severe traffic problems which can delay trucking in and out of these centers. The cost of freight shipping in California can vary greatly due to the many factors involved in the state's commerce, but LTL and truckload shipping often have very low prices simply because of the quantity of goods moving through the state.
