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.
West Virginia is a state located primarily in the Appalachian Mountains. The lowlands see mild winters and hot summers, while the higher elevations are prone to large amounts of snow. The cornerstone of the economy is the coal mining industry. The extensive railroad system formed as a result of the coal industry, and most West Virginia freight moves by rail. Trucking can be difficult in the extremely mountainous areas, and West Virginia freight shipping prices reflect this difficulty. However, there is an extensive highway system in the state. LTL freight shipping can be difficult to find for an affordable price due to the low volume of goods moving through the state.
