Connecticut is considered part of the New York metro area and therefore is extremely accessible due to the large number of roads and railways throughout the state. Although Connecticut has some agricultural and industrial output, many residents of the state commute to New York for work. As there are far more goods moving into the state than going out, Connecticut freight shipping out of the state can almost always be found for low prices. The climate is mild, and the roads are well maintained, although traffic can slow Connecticut shipping down somewhat. LTL shipping is usually affordable due to the volume of goods that move in, out, and through Connecticut.

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