Milwaukee, WI freight rates Known for its delectable varieties of beer and sausage, Milwaukee is positioned in the upper Midwest near major highways, waterways and railroads. About a quarter of the nation’s population is within 600 miles of the region. Two interstates, I-94 and I-43, intersect Milwaukee while I-90 passes nearby. Five railroads provide freight service. And domestic and international shipments use the Port of Milwaukee, which handles more than 3 million tons of cargo per year. The Port serves locations throughout the Great Lakes, the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Gulf of Mexico, via the inland waterway system. Its 16 berths can accommodate vessels up to 1,000 feet. Because Milwaukee is located in the more industrial section of the state, freight shipping, especially LTL freight, is available for better prices than other areas of Wisconsin. Outbound freight rates from Milwaukee are almost always less than shipping to the region.

Boston, MA freight rates The Port of Boston is the oldest continually active port in the Western Hemisphere. Its Conley Container Terminal in South Boston serves six of the world’s top 10 container lines and handles nearly 1.5 million metric tons of cargo each year. The port provides efficient truck turn times from pedestal to pedestal of about 30 minutes. The terminal is situated less than two miles from the I-90 and I-93 interstates and the port authority is in the process of building a dedicated freight corridor to separate truck traffic from local commuter traffic to increase efficiency. Nearly 100 ocean container trucking firms offer service through the Port of Boston, as well as dozens of firms that offer international freight forwarding, customs house brokerage and ocean transportation Intermediary services. Logan International Airport is the 10th busiest facility in the country for cargo handling with several domestic and international carriers and two cargo complexes. The Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is another option for air freight. About a dozen railroad companies provide freight service in and around Boston and throughout the state of Massachusetts.
