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