Arizona freight rates are substantially affected by the produce market. Outbound freight can be expensive in the spring, summer and even fall months due to the warmer desert climate which creates a longer growing season. Products arriving from Mexico can also affect freight rates in Arizona. Arizona is a medium consumption state, so LTL freight rates are relatively cheap due to a moderate amount of freight moving in the state. There are numerous unpopulated desert areas, so shipping to those zip codes can be high cost. The copper industry is strong and with major railroad access, intermodal freight rates are reasonable. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of Arizona can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
New York is a high consumption state, meaning lots of freight is shipped to the state. Truckload freight rates in New York are always more expensive when shipping to the state. Freight shipping outbound from New York is much more affordable. However, due to the large agricultural industry and other markets, compared to other states, the freight rates are great. The port in New York offers great international freight access and the numerous rail lines in the state make intermodal freight shipping a great option. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of New York can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
