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.
Textiles make South Carolina freight rates a bit trendier than other states. The Mid-Atlantic states in general are a bit harder to find truckload capacity, which can negatively affect truckload freight rates. The lumber industry can make freight shipping outbound South Carolina much more expensive during the fall than any other time. LTL freight rates can be more expensive in the rural areas of South Carolina and slightly above average in the more populated areas due to the factors listed above. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of South Carolina can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
