Wisconsin is a Midwestern state located on the Great Lakes. A large part of the state is made up of flat plains, and agriculture is an important part of the economy. Dairy products are an especially important part of Wisconsin's economy and culture. Wisconsin has a low population density and therefore a low volume of goods moving through the state. Wisconsin freight shipping can be found for the best prices in the more industrial areas. More remote areas will have higher prices, and freight shipping may be hard to find. Wisconsin freight also moves by rail and by water over the great lakes, but demand for shipping is fairly low. LTL freight is least expensive in the industrial centers.
Illinois is probably the busiest state in the Midwest, with the metropolitan area of Chicago being a major Illinois freight shipping hub. There is a major port here that connects the Great Lakes to the Mississippi river, allowing for inexpensive water transport. Illinois freight shipping by rail is also very inexpensive and easy to use, as Chicago is one of the largest railroad hubs in the country. There is also an extensive highway system that helps move the high volume of goods produced in Illinois from agriculture, meat and dairy production, and energy production. LTL freight shipping is usually quite affordable due to the high volume of goods moving in, out, and through the state.
