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.
South Dakota freight shipping is not high volume due to the low consumption and small industry located there. However, it can be very affordable due to lower capacity and lower demand. South Dakota freight rates can be high in some very rural areas. This includes LTL freight and truckload freight. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of South Dakota can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
