Alabama Freight Rates
Alabama boasts many industrial and agricultural resources. Some agricultural products are poultry, plants, corn and cattle and the industrial products are mainly steel and iron. It is the supply and demand from this that increase the freight rates when leaving Alabama. Alabama's winters are mild which makes the freight trucking safer and easier than many other parts of the country. Inbound Alabama freight rates during the hot summer are usually cheaper than any other time during the year. However, LTL freight rates in Alabama are average to high when in comparison to other states, mainly due to the low volume and low consumption. With all this being said, Alabama does have one major port (the Port of Mobile), useful for shipping international freight. Usually you can find excellent and cheap truckload freight rates close to Mobile because of its ability to make use of the Port.
