Washington is located in the Pacific Northwest and borders both the Pacific Ocean and Canada. Much of the terrain consists of rugged mountain ranges. Agriculture is a major industry in the state, which also boasts an extremely busy international port. Heavy snows during the winter can close some mountain passes, making some roads difficult to travel during these months. An extended network of waterways allows for Washington freight to move by water when possible. Most rail lines also connect to the busy ports, allowing for Washington shipping rates to remain low and reasonable. LTL freight is usually affordable due to the volume of goods moving through the state.
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.
