North Carolina freight rates Textiles and weather make North Carolina freight rates a bit trendier than other states. The Mid-Atlantic states in general are a bit harder to find truckload capacity, which can negatively affect truckload freight rates. The lumber industry can make freight shipping outbound North Carolina much more expensive during the fall than any other time. LTL freight rates can be more expensive in the rural areas of North Carolina and slightly above average in the more populated areas due to the factors listed above. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of North Carolina can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
Hawaii freight rates Freight shipping to Hawaii is one of the most expensive of any state. Air freight and ocean freight transport are key to shipping in and out of Hawaii. Normal truckload rates will be calculated on the road for part of the way, and over air or ocean the rest of the way.
