Virginia Beach to Houston Freight Shipping

Houston Freight Shipping

Houston, Texas, is a major freight shipping hub in the United States. It is home to numerous freight forwarding companies and freight carriers who work tirelessly to ensure that all kinds of freight is shipped to and from the region. From Houston, freight can be transported via rail, road, air, and sea, making it a highly accessible port for domestic and international shipments. The type of freight shipped to and from Houston varies greatly. Many of its freight customers are local businesses shipping goods within the United States; exports also make up a large part of its freight volume. Due to Houston's proximity to many Gulf Coast ports, including Galveston Island, freight can be loaded onto vessels bound for destinations worldwide. Often, these shipments are bulk items such as oil or gas tankers fueled by the area's nearby refineries; however, many dry goods are shipped out of Houston, such as food products, electronics, machinery parts, and other consumer goods.

Cost to Ship Freight to Houston

 

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