Shipping from Chicago

Chicago, IL freight rates Chicago offers an unmatched combination of transportation modes and infrastructure for both domestic and international freight shipping. The city serves as a hub for six of the nation’s seven Class I North American railroads, making it the premier rail hub in the country. The region is connected to six major U.S. interstate highways, with a large amount of truck-hauled freight going to neighboring states. Chicago is also home to O’Hare International Airport, one of the world’s busiest airports. Common items shipped in and out of the region include electronics, pharmaceuticals and machinery. A lot of goods flow between the Windy City and East Asia. Railroads and trucks take international items to and from California’s ports, and airplanes make stops in Alaska between the two destinations. Inbound freight rates are relatively affordable in the city because of larger demand for outbound freight.

Shipping to Minneapolis

Minneapolis, MN freight rates Leaders in the Minneapolis area believe the transportation infrastructure of the Twin Cities is a leading factor to why the region is considered the second least stressful city in the nation. That means shipping in and out of the Greater MSP region should be relatively stress-free as well. Highway access is provided by I-35 and I-94. Four Class I railroads serve the area. The Minneapolis area also has convenient access to two major bodies of water that provide efficient shipping options. Just to the north is the Port of Duluth on Lake Superior, which connects the region’s businesses to ocean-going cargo ships. To the south, there are three ports on the Mississippi River for hauling products to the Gulf of Mexico. Minneapolis freight rates are usually higher than most because there are not many cities or urban areas surrounding the area or within the state. Rates can also peak in the summer.
