Alabama freight rates Outbound Alabama truckload rates in the summer are increased due to the high demand of trucks to ship agricultural products. Alabama's freight industry revolves around agriculture including poultry, cattle, plants, corn and industrial products such as steel and iron. Inbound Alabama truckload freight rates during the very hot summer are generally cheaper than any other time. Due to the nature of LTL freight pricing, seasonality doesn’t usually affect Alabama freight cost. LTL freight rates in Alabama are generally average to high when compared to other states, mostly due to lower volume and consumption. There is one major port in Alabama, useful for shipping freight internationally, the Port of Mobile. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of Alabama can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.

Kentucky freight rates Shipping freight into Kentucky is generally cheaper than shipping freight out of the state. Kentucky has a very large automobile assembly industry, which can lead to a higher demand for power units coming out of the state. LTL freight shipping in Kentucky can be higher than other locations if shipping to or out of a rural destination. However, the central location of the state makes freight rates affordable. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of Kentucky can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
