Colorado is a mountainous state with severe and often unpredictable weather on the roads. Harsh winters and steep roads can make freight trucking dangerous; however, most Colorado shipping is done by truck. The state economy is driven by a variety of industries, including agriculture, meat production, mining, drilling, and manufacturing. There is a comparatively small volume of goods moving through the state, so low Colorado freight shipping prices may be difficult to find, especially in the winter. However, shipping goods out of the state is often less expensive than shipping goods in. LTL shipping can be affordable because most of the state’s freight shipping is done via truck rather than rail or air.

Cost to Ship Freight to Colorado
The time of year and what part of the country a shipment is picking up in will affect the cost of shipping to Colorado. 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.
