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.
Colorado is a mountainous state with severe and often unpredictable weather on the roads. Harsh winters and steep roads can make freight trucking dangerous, however most Colorado shipping is done by truck. The state economy is driven by a variety of industries including agriculture, meat production, mining, drilling, and manufacturing. There is a comparatively small volume of goods moving through the state, so low Colorado freight shipping prices may be difficult to find, especially in the winter. However, shipping goods out of the state is often less expensive than shipping goods in. LTL shipping can be affordable because most of the state's freight shipping is done via truck rather than rail or air.
