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.
Hawaii freight rates Freight shipping to Hawaii is one of the most expensive of any state. Air freight and ocean freight transport are key to shipping in and out of Hawaii. Normal truckload rates will be calculated on the road for part of the way, and over air or ocean the rest of the way.
