Maine is the northernmost state on the Atlantic coast and shares a border with Canada. The rugged terrain consists of mountain ranges and dense forests, which produce large amounts of lumber. Most Maine shipping is accomplished by sea and by rail, and the seaport in Portland is one of the busiest on the coast. Maine freight shipping rates are usually inexpensive due to this critical freight hub, and international shipping is also quite affordable. Trucking is a less common method of shipping, but there is still a high volume of goods moving through the state, making LTL shipping reasonably affordable, particularly in the most populated areas.

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