Idaho freight rates Idaho freight shipping, especially truckload freight, is affected mostly by the potato and onion market year round. Idaho is a low consumption state with many rural areas, which can make LTL freight rates a little more expensive. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of Idaho can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
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.
