Idaho is a large and mountainous state with the furthest inland seaport on the west coast. The state is an important agricultural producer in the United States, and in addition to food, Idaho produces lumber, electronics, and gemstones. The roads may be poorly maintained, but Idaho freight shipping is usually inexpensive due to the number of trucks moving through the state. Due to the Lewistown Port, international shipping can be considered. There are two different transcontinental railways passing through the state, and Idaho freight is usually even less expensive when goods are traveling west. LTL freight shipping can be expensive due to the high volume of goods moving out of the state compared to the volume of goods moving in.

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