Seattle, WA freight rates Not only can Seattle boast a Super Bowl winning football team, excellent coffee and a vibrant music scene, it is also a great air and ocean gateway for cargo from Asia to multiple points in North America. The Port of Seattle is made up of 1,543 acres of waterfront land and nearby properties including container terminals, general purpose/cargo terminals, a Foreign Trade Zone, break-bulk cargo and refrigerated cargo and storage. The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport offers cargo options from 20 U.S. and 14 foreign carriers, as well as a concentration of nearby freight forwarders, customs brokers, distribution centers and other logistics supply chain service providers. Most of the state of Washington’s rail lines connect to the busy ports, allowing for local shipping rates to remain low and reasonable. LTL freight is usually affordable due to the volume of goods moving through the state. Winter weather in the mountainous regions of the state can affect price and efficiency of cargo moving on the ground to and from the city.

Long Beach , CA freight rates More than 100,000 metric tons of international goods are transported annually through the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, which handle over 40 percent of all inbound containers for the entire United States. Shippers can efficiently move freight to and from the ports using the Alameda Corridor, a 20-mile-long rail cargo expressway linking the ports to the transcontinental rail network near downtown Los Angeles. In addition, an excellent freeway and highway system allows multimodal transport and efficient origination for cross-country delivery. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is another component of the region’s international trade. LAX handles high-value products, such as medical instruments, electronics, and perishables and processes about 2 million tons of cargo annually. The airport is served by 43 international carriers and all major air freight lines.
