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