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.
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.
