Alaska freight rates 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.
Delaware freight rates Shipping to Delaware's open and rural areas is generally not too expensive and the freight rates are steady. Because of the consumption of the area, lots of LTL freight moves in, so less than truckload freight rates are affordable throughout the area. There are ports and major railroads nearby, so intermodal freight is a great option for Delaware. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of Delaware can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
