Rhode Island is a very small state located on the northeastern Atlantic coast. The state has numerous ports and bays, including the Port of Providence, one of the largest deep-water seaports in the New England area. The state economy is based largely on manufactured goods, and there is usually a steady stream of Rhode Island freight moving by truck. As a high-consumption state, outbound Rhode Island freight shipping rates are usually the least expensive. A high volume of goods moving through the state makes LTL shipping affordable. Although Rhode Island is the nation’s smallest state, the proximity to larger and busier states means shipping prices are fairly low and normally stable.
