Arizona freight rates 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.
Connecticut freight rates Connecticut freight rates are almost always more affordable leaving the state. The state is a heavy consumption state, so lots of freight moves into the state. This leaves an abundance of trucks eager to ship your truckload freight out of Connecticut. LTL rates are very affordable, especially in the urban areas, due to the larger quantity of trucks moving. Intermodal freight rates are average. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of Connecticut can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
