Arkansas shipping is highly active; this southern state has a busy trucking and rail freight system. Arkansas is mountainous in the northern regions, while the south consists of lowlands. Extreme weather can slow down shipping, especially in the winter when freezing rain is a concern on roads. Arkansas freight shipping can be found for low prices both into and out of the state. LTL is also exceptionally affordable in most areas. The meat industry in Arkansas also ensures that there is ample affordable refrigerated freight shipping available. Air freight shipping may be less affordable due to the lack of a major air freight hub in Arkansas.

Cost to Ship Freight to Arkansas
The time of year and what part of the country a shipment is picking up in will affect the cost of shipping to Arkansas. Part of a freight rate is the linehaul, and the farther a shipment has to travel, the more fuel is used, and the more expensive the trip will be for the carrier.
Among other factors affecting freight cost will be the item’s size, weight, density, and commodity being shipped. Certain commodities are given a higher freight class which correlates to a higher price to ship.
Freight shipping accessorials will factor into the pricing. Some examples include lift gate service, residential pick-up/deliveries, and limited access locations.
