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.

San Francisco, CA freight rates Not only can you leave your heart in San Francisco, you can also leave a lot of cargo in the City by the Bay. Not to mention you can ship a lot of it outbound as well, as San Francisco is the seventh largest overall exporting region in the U.S. and the largest exporting region to Asia. The Port of San Francisco is unique in its ability to handle many types of cargo in an efficient and cost effective way. The port frequently handles rolling stock, project cargo, and breakbulk. The city is served by more than 20 trucking companies and two major railroads. Air Cargo service at the San Francisco International Airport is available from 56 airlines, including seven cargo-only airlines. U.S. Custom’s services are available on site 24/7. Air freight in and out of San Francisco is in high demand and the growing demand for international cargo will push the airport to nearly full capacity in the next several years. This could raise the cost of air freight in and out of the city.
