Freight shipping rates in Alaska can sometimes be expensive due to the lack of roads and the sheer size of the state. Thankfully, most of the freight is located at the major port and in the cities. The Port of Anchorage is the major freight hub of the state. Freight rates leaving Alaska are almost always cheaper, especially refrigerated trucking rates, since most food is imported from the outside. LTL freight rates in Alaska are calculated on a stable tariff and do not usually increase or decrease based on seasonality. However, shipping less than truckload to Alaska is generally more expensive.
Indiana freight rates are consistent and not based much on seasonality. Indiana is a large steel producing state, so inbound freight rates can be cheaper than outbound. Indiana LTL freight rates are reasonable. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of Indiana can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
